I've just taken a look at the schematics of the MBP16,1 and it turns out
that T2 *is* the gmux.  The chip is called H9M.  The interaction with the
OS is through that MMIO area.

There's a GPIO expander attached to T2 via I2C (NXP PCAL6524), probably
because they didn't have enough GPIO pins available on T2 itself.
The GPIO expander enables/disables the voltage regulators of the discrete
GPU, hence can cut power to it.  It also drives panel power and has a GPIO
to switch the mux.

The mux is an NXP CBTL06142 as on previous models.
