devm_pinctrl_get_select_default function is added in below commit which
is in pinctrl/for-next.

commit 6d4ca1fb467932773da7b808c52f3d7ef4461ba0

    pinctrl: implement devm_pinctrl_get()/put()
    These functions allow the driver core to automatically clean up any
    allocations made by drivers, thus leading to simplified drivers.

So it'll fail compile without pinctrl/for-next. I guess Linus may need
to prepare a non-rebase base for others to merge.
