SubjectRE: [PATCH v2] pinctrl: at91-pio4: implement .get_multiple and .set_multiple

Actually it won't 'improve synchronisation', instead it will lead to
random synchronisation errors and potential metastability if one
pin is used as a clock and another as data, or if the code is reading
a free-flowing counter.

It will improve performance though.
