i2c-mux-gpio: Update documentation



* Document the possibility to pass relative GPIO pin numbers.
* Document what platform device IDs to use, so that they do not
  collide.

If you don't know the absolute GPIO pin numbers at registration time,
you can instead provide a chip name (.chip_name) and relative GPIO pin
numbers, and the i2c-gpio-mux driver will do the work for you,
including deferred probing if the GPIO chip isn't immediately
available.
Device Registration
-------------------
When registering your i2c-gpio-mux device, you should pass the number
of any GPIO pin it uses as the device ID. This guarantees that every
instance has a different ID.
Alternatively, if you don't need a stable device name, you can simply
pass PLATFORM_DEVID_AUTO as the device ID, and the platform core will
assign a dynamic ID to your device. If you do not know the absolute
GPIO pin numbers at registration time, this is even the only option.
