I do prefer that your request any resources during probe() and
potentially enable/disable them here. If below concern about using a
GPIO driver is cleared already I'll take it as is though.

This doesn't sound like a gpio-controller and the GPIO maintainer did
reject an attempt by me to use the GPIO framework to abstract a similar
thing. Do you already have this driver upstream or have you clarified
with the maintainer that the GPIO framework is an acceptable abstraction
for this?

It looks equivalent to the "APCS IPC" register found in Qualcomm
platforms, previously implemented through a syscon but in v4.13 being
pushed to being a mailbox driver.


Apart from this I think the series looks good.
