The problem here is that the register ranges are not contiguous and
the holes in between are used by other devices, so I can't use a
single range.

I wanted to avoid a reg property with a list of 7 ranges. Anyway, I
agree that the split seems a bit arbitrary; I'll remove it.

I will use "groups" instead of "pins" for the pinmux configuration.
