The pinctrl-msm.c driver would be the TLMM (v2 and v3) driver...

...and the pinctrl-msm8x74.c would be the data for SoCs matching that name.

Currently we know that 8074 is a 8974 without modem and the document I have
describing this incarnation of the SoC describes 8274, 8674 and 8974.

So as Stephen suggest; we could keep the name pinctrl-msm8x74.c as is and
we change the compatible to be explicit about this is qcom,msm8974-pinctrl.

That would give us room to handle any differences between 8074 and 8974 within
this file.

What do you say? Should I prepare a patch for this?
