Right.

Yes that's what I was thinking, something like this with generic flags:

pinctrl-single,pins = <AM335X_PIN_MDC (PIN_INPUT | PIN_PULLUP) MUX_MODE7>;

That would be even better :) Might be just too much to deal with..

In any case the parser code could already be generic if we had generic
flags based on #pinctrl-cells.
