It's how many GPIOs in the GRF, not this register. What I'm saying is
when you come along later to add another GPIO in the GRF, you had
better just add it to this same node. I'm not going to accept another
GPIO controller node within the GRF. You have the cells to support
more than 1, so it would only be a driver change. The compatible
string would then not be ideally named at that point. But compatible
strings are just unique identifiers, so it doesn't really matter what
the string is.

I'm being told both "this is the only GPIO" and "the GRF has too many
different functions for us to tell you what they all are". So which is
it?
