I am happy enough with the names.

This means that if we have a set_config we are directly
equating PERSISTENT to RESET_TOLERANT, which seems wrong to
me. I might have a GPIO on a controller with pinconf that
doesn't have anything to do with RESET_TOLERANT. Should the
PIN_CONFIG_RESET_TOLERANT, really just be PIN_CONFIG_PERSISTENT?
And then its upto the driver what persistence means for that
chip?

Thanks,
Charles
