We call it TLMM (top-level mode mux). So far there have been three major
revisions of the hardware and 8974 uses the latest version.

Leaving the pinctrl-msm.c file as in these patches is fine. For the SoC
specific data files we should use the base chip name which in this case
is 8974. I suppose the goal of pinctrl-msm8x74.c is to support 8974 and
8074 SoCs in the same file because they're almost exactly the same minus
some pins losing their "modem" functions. Given that, the file names are
fine but the binding and the data structures should be specific about
which SoC we're talking about.
