Subject: [PATCH] pinctrl: samsung: Calculate GPIO base for pinctrl_add_gpio_range

As the pinctrl is now added before the GPIOs are registered we need to
manually calculate what the GPIO base will be, otherwise the base for
each gpio_range will be set to zero. Fortunately the driver
already assigns a GPIO base, in samsung_gpiolib_register, and uses the
same calculation it does for the pin_base. Meaning the two will always
be the same and allowing us to reuse the pinbase and avoid the issue.

Ok I might have spoken to soon there looks like there is a simple
way to fix this up, at least in this case. It would be much more
of an issue if the driver allocated its GPIO base dynamically.
