They are the number of available functions. This is not necessarily the
same as the number of pins. Many chips have more functions than pins.

Yes, it does support different functions on a single pin, but not at
the same time.  You have to choose what function you want on each pin,
and that is what the new ioctl lets you do.

I did not change the n_per_out in this series, but once this basic
support gets merged, then you will be able to increase n_per_out for
the dp83640 with little extra effort.

Thanks,
Richard
