OK, thank you two! Will remove the at91 patch from the current series.
Block GPIO support for at91 can be added later.

I just noticed that the patch set needs another patch not yet in
mainline, but in linux-next, linux-gpio and gpio/next.

I'm providing a branch to easily pull from for testing, building on v3.7:

git://git.antcom.de/linux-2.6.git blockgpio

Feedback welcome - thanks!
