Would be nice to rewrite this binding in YAML

Just poking magic hex values into some random register as
part of a binding is not a good idea.

This looks like trying to reinvent the pin config subsystem.

GPIO is using the standard pin configurations in the second cell of
the handle, use them in this driver as well and add new ones if we

You find the existing flags here:

If you need something more sophisticated than a simple flag, I think
you need to implement proper pin config.
