There are some pins on MSMs that can be connected to different hw
blocks, we just haven't gotten the support into the kernel yet.
There are some things where two devices share pins, and you have to
choose one or the other.
I believe there are also configurations where something such as the SD
controller can either be configured in 8-bit data mode, or in 4-bit
data mode, and those 4 pins connected to something else.
Much of the current pin configuration in our product kernel seems to
be about current and pull up/down configuration.
I've added Rohit Vaswani, and Greg Bean to this thread who should have
a bit better understanding of this.
