Hi Lars,

Yes, STM32 EXTI is external interrupt/event line. In case of STM32 ADC,
EXTI11 signal can be used to start a conversion. In this case, it must
be selected inside ADC IP using extsel bitfield. This EXTI11 line can
mapped from any GPIO bank A,B... line 11 (e.g. PA11 or PB11...) by using
interrupt binding.
This is why I expose this in DT.
