Subject: [PATCH 2/8] gpio: exar: Fix passing in of parent PCI device

This fixes reloading of the driver for the same device: First of all,
the driver sets drvdata to its own value during probing and does not
restore the original value on exit. But this won't help anyway as the
core clears drvdata after the driver left.

Use stable platform_data instead.
