I have a little worry about how will this map work after all foo-spi,
foo-i2c, foo-mmc use DT. they will lose those simple name just
foo-spi.0, foo-spi.1, foo-spi.2 except that we use OF_DEV_AUXDATA_ID.
the actual device name might be foo-spi.200fee or something like that.
then this map will have the same problem with the current clock/device
mapping.
could we have a way to define the connection between device and pinmux
in DTS directly?

Thanks
