Thanks to you and Alexandre for keep improving the GPIO subsystem!

Yes, I just asked [0] Rob on the other thread if he is already implementing the
descriptor-based version of his devm_request_gpio_array() or if I should go and
implement it.

Now, I wonder if that can be done in a follow-up patch (e.g: use the new
devm_gpiod_get_array once it lands in Torvalds tree)  since this series already
touches several subsystems (mfd, regulators, clk and rtc) so if possible I would
prefer to not add another cross-subsystem dependency :)

Right, I can't think of a good reason why this has to be raw and not just use
gpiod_direction_output() which will check the active-low flag and set the value
accordingly. I'll change it on the next revision.

Great, thanks a lot for your feedback.
