Sorry I guess I wasn't clear.
Right now I have a soc-pinctrl.dtsi containing pin groupings.
This will be "inherited" by soc-boardtype.dts.
The pinctrl client device nodes in soc-boardtype.dts will point to pin
groupings in soc-pinctrl.dtsi that are valid for that particular boardtype.
Is this a valid design?

that are valid for that
