Currently I wrote a function for checking that inputs and outputs match the
expected values for the four test cases I mention in comment #78 . Currently
cleaning up.

Added BS chain reset after every test case.

This is not required, as values of core_input can be deduced from core_output.

After conversation with Luke (starts at 17:34:47,
https://libre-soc.org/irclog/%23libre-soc.2022-01-06.log.html) had the
discussion on the I/O mux block (iomb).

I drew a diagram of the iomb as well as how to build larger bank select muxes
from it. The diagram can be found in the IRC log, however it is a rough and
temporary sketch, so I'll make a better version and put it in the wiki later
(and link it with a new comment).

Now Luke has clarified that I need to extend the simple_gpio
to have:
-Input and oe signals in addition to output
-Direction selection (input/output)
-Add bank select signal
-Add CSR write command to affect the direction and bank of the GPIO

So far I only copied the simple_gpio to the pinmux repo. Tomorrow I will
continue working at it.
