The original GPIO lookup table specifies the device name
("rfkill_gpio"), no con_id, and an index. gpiod_find() will ensure
that the device names match, skip the con_id (as it is null in the
table), and again require that the indexes are the same. So provided
the instanciated device's dev_name() is "rfkill_gpio" (which it seems
to be according to the driver - not sure if it could become
"rfkill_gpio.0"), then I'd say the GPIOs will match. The con_id passed
to gpiod_get() will only be used as a label for debugfs. I am not sure
where the "rfkill_gpio_reset" you mention comes from?

One could wonder why the names of the GPIO are not hardcoded in the
driver instead of being defined as platform data, but that point could
be improved in a future patch.

It is true however that the platform GPIO lookup mechanism is
confusing at best, on top of being inefficient (one big linked list).
I have a patch in the pipe that should improve both points by making
GPIO lookup tables defined per-device - don't hesitate to merge this
series first if it works though.

Alex.
