I think its better to fix this by changing the "select PINCTRL_SINGLE"
to "imply PINCTRL_SINGLE". It should be valid to build a DaVinci kernel
without pinctrl support if bootloader is taking care of the pin muxing.

I would not recommend it, but its not illegal either.

While at it, I would drop the other "select PINCTRL" line under "config
MACH_DA8XX_DT". It should not be needed since ARCH_DAVINCI will imply
