I am conservative with introduction of new API functions because once API is
released people will start using it and we are stuck with that (Linus
I think that the macros do the job and are intuitive enough. True we lack
asserts but some errors, such as non existing port are reported by the
I would add functions some time to recheck. One problem is that the port
representation is different from macros (i know there's not help there). In
meantime we could focus on macros.

CFG is probably more intuitive than PINCD - OK. However I would put __mux next
to __port and __bit and __irqc next to __cnf. Rationale: __port, __bit, __mux
triplet represents kind of /addressing parameters/ and __irqc, __cnf are
/configuration options/.

Based on your example I expected some code for ISR handling. May, but doesn't
have to be. Please check if your patch is complete.
