Wait a minute.... this driver looks very much like gpio-generic. It
really should be using that interface, not recreating all the gpio
infrastructure that has been done so many times before.

Please take a look at either send me a follow-on patch to convert it to
use gpio-generic, or tell my why gpio-generic isn't appropriate here.
It's already in, so I'm not got to take it back out (that wouldn't be
very fair), but I may decide to move it to staging.
