Value that exists only for mux devices that can be
written to control the behaviour of the multiplexer on
idle. Possible values:
=========== ===============================================
-2 disconnect on idle, i.e. deselect the last used
channel, which is useful when there is a device
with an address that conflicts with another
device on another mux on the same parent bus.
-1 leave the mux as-is, which is the most optimal
setting in terms of I2C operations and is the
default mode.
0..<nchans> set the mux to a predetermined channel,
which is useful if there is one channel that is
used almost always, and you want to reduce the
latency for normal operations after rare
transactions on other channels
