+Pinctrl-based I2C Bus Mux
+
+This binding describes an I2C bus multiplexer that uses pin multiplexing to
+route the I2C signals, and represents the pin multiplexing configuration
+using the pinctrl device tree bindings.

+
+Required properties:
+- compatible: i2c-mux-pinctrl
+- i2c-parent: The phandle of the I2C bus that this multiplexer's master-side
+ port is connected to.
+
+Also required are:
+
+* Standard pinctrl properties that specify the pin mux state for each child
+ bus. See ../pinctrl/pinctrl-bindings.txt.
+
+* Standard I2C mux properties. See mux.txt in this directory.
+
+* I2C child bus nodes. See mux.txt in this directory.
+
+For each named state defined in the pinctrl-names property, an I2C child bus
+will be created. I2C child bus numbers are assigned based on the index into
+the pinctrl-names property.
+
+The only exception is that no bus will be created for a state named "idle". If
+such a state is defined, it must be the last entry in pinctrl-names. For
+example:
+
+ pinctrl-names = "ddc", "pta", "idle" -> ddc = bus 0, pta = bus 1
+ pinctrl-names = "ddc", "idle", "pta" -> Invalid ("idle" not last)
+ pinctrl-names = "idle", "ddc", "pta" -> Invalid ("idle" not last)
+
+Whenever an access is made to a device on a child bus, the relevant pinctrl
+state will be programmed into hardware.
+
+If an idle state is defined, whenever an access is not being made to a device
+on a child bus, the idle pinctrl state will be programmed into hardware.
+
+If an idle state is not defined, the most recently used pinctrl state will be
+left programmed into hardware whenever no access is being made of a device on
+a child bus.
+
+Example:
+
+ i2cmux {
+ compatible = "i2c-mux-pinctrl";
+ #address-cells = <1>;
+ #size-cells = <0>;
+
+ i2c-parent = <&i2c1>;
+
+ pinctrl-names = "ddc", "pta", "idle";
+ pinctrl-0 = <&state_i2cmux_ddc>;
+ pinctrl-1 = <&state_i2cmux_pta>;
+ pinctrl-2 = <&state_i2cmux_idle>;
+
+ i2c@0 {
+ reg = <0>;
+ #address-cells = <1>;
+ #size-cells = <0>;
+
+ eeprom {
+ compatible = "eeprom";
+ reg = <0x50>;
+ };
+ };
+
+ i2c@1 {
+ reg = <1>;
+ #address-cells = <1>;
+ #size-cells = <0>;
+
+ eeprom {
+ compatible = "eeprom";
+ reg = <0x50>;
+ };
+ };
+ };
