This looks distinctly odd. Why do you need this here?

Surely this is defined in the gpio flags?

Does this need to be in DT? Surely we could jsut always check this?

This means nothing from a HW perspective. This describes linux internal
details.

If you need theses casts, the code is broken.

These functions can only read into a u32. If you pass a smaller type
you'll trash aribtrary memory locations, and if you pass a larger type
this is broken for BE.

Mark.
