Pulling it into arm-soc as a dependency only means we will have it as
a base for other branches that depend on.  It does not change anything
about how the branch flows to Linus.  Arnd will only send those arm-soc
branches that depend on sound/for-3.5 after it gets merged by Linus.

It will break all the imx-audmux users that haven't got any pinctrl
states defined for imx-audmux.  We have patches on imx (arm-soc) tree
defining pinctrl states either in DT or dummy states in board files
to make sure pinctrl API works fine for every imx-audmux users.
