No, not this way. We are really trying hard *not* to put *that* magic into
the code. Just FYI that SIZEs I have calculated myself, but these SIZEs
are *not* the same as the ones used in pinctrl-broxton *semantically*.

One if for resource provider, one is for consumer. They are simply different
in this sense.

See above. I guess here is a misunderstanding behind meaning of the (same)
numbers in different parts. Technically we may unify them, but it will be
a layering violation.
