OK please make a patch to do it really optional in the core if
you find the time, it seems like a good change anyway, because
it will make it possible to reduce some current pin name lists
quite easily.

If you need to change the layout of debugfs just do it.

I actually had something like unnamed pins in the early patches
to register a bunch of anonymous pins ranges, so why not bring
it back in.
