True, you are hitting the bypass control and not powering on the
oscillator control since the 32k is incoming from RTC, in my case, since
I have an actual 32k crystal, I am clearing the powerdown.

Typically, yes - input signals more useful for eQEP or GPIO. but the
implementation is at pin level which, technically could be used for
other purposes (but I have'nt seen any).

TRM was a bit of a crap (internal ticket was filed to improve), but long
story short:
* bootloader configures delays per index
* in the pinmux configuration, we pick which index to use for the pin

On Beagleplay, for example, the HDMI hot plug detect GPIO benefited from
this[1]. Corresponding pinctrl.h macros were posted in [2].

Why do it in the bootloader? since gpio inputs could also used in u-boot
(e.g. MMC/CD)

All said, Tom's question is very valid - we'd rather not modify evm.c
for these specific configurations (popcorn as they might be), and we
need to figure out a better option to introduce this kind of variation
cleanly. For now, I will try dropping this patch.
