The ' pinctrl-assert-gpios ' is ONLY in NXP local tree, FEC owner added it because he
wants to set this GPIO ONCE during kernel boot up, but upstream kernel does NOT
support the pinctrl-assert-gpio, so we have to drop it, the MAX7322 IO0 is for adjusting
FEC's voltage, I meant for FEC IO's voltage, 1.5V or 1.8V. If I made any confuse, I am
sorry for that, I think it should be clear now, all we want/need is to set this GPIO ONCE
to get the IO voltage we want.

Agree, since currently our FEC driver does NOT support adjusting such IO voltage in driver, 
and there is NO such requirement of runtime switching IO voltage for FEC, so I think it
should be good here, just use the default settings of MAX7322 IO0 described in 'reg_fec',
if there is any further requirement of runtime adjusting FEC IO voltage, I think FEC driver
needs to add such support, and there will be new patch for it.

Thanks.
