So if some board uses the HDMI GPIOs for some other function, then you
would need to model them as GPIOs. Presumably there's just a syscon
phandle and the HDMI driver touches those registers directly which is
not ideal.

But you can't refactor bindings later on. Extend yes, refactor no.
That's what I'm trying to make sure you avoid.

So if you don't want to be stuck with the "mute" name later on, call
this "...-grf-gpio" to make it future proof.
