I see this particular pin controller as a one shot deal. For the next
part in this series we are moving to a completely different controller
which you could probably get away with simply using pinctrl-single.

Maybe to be more clear, I would say the design is not a 'bug', but
rather an under sight of the original designers where are they stared
to need pins that would be both in and out, they started tacking on
more hardware.
