pinctrl: rip out the direct pinconf API
From the inception ot the pin config API there has been the possibility to get a handle at a pin directly and configure its electrical characteristics. For this reason we had: int pin_config_get(const char *dev_name, const char *name, unsigned long *config); int pin_config_set(const char *dev_name, const char *name, unsigned long config); int pin_config_group_get(const char *dev_name, const char *pin_group, unsigned long *config); int pin_config_group_set(const char *dev_name, const char *pin_group, unsigned long config); After the introduction of the pin control states that will control pins associated with devices, and its subsequent introduction to the device core, as well as the introduction of pin control hogs that can set up states on boot and optionally also at sleep, this direct pin control API is a thing of the past. As could be expected, it has zero in-kernel users. Let's delete this API and make our world simpler.

-Pin configuration can be programmed either using the explicit APIs described

-For example, a platform may do the following to pull up a pin to VDD:
-
-#include <linux/pinctrl/consumer.h>

The format and meaning of the configuration parameter, PLATFORM_X_PULL_UP
above, is entirely defined by the pin controller driver.
