If they are intrinsic to the function, i.e. whenever someone wants to use
that function they need to do this (nb the Documentation/pinctrl.txt
definition of "function", nothing else) then this should IMO not be in
the device tree at all, but hard-coded in the driver.

E.g. if someone needs to use a function such as "i2c0", on whatever
pins, then it should just be set up by the driver, no DT involved. It is a
hardware pecularity, drivers drive hardware so...

If however it depends on which pins it is used with, then it is pin
configuration and should use a DT property.
