Still feels to me like it should be the providers job to the
restore the state rather than expecting the consumer to
re-request any state it had. But lets wait and see what Linus

Also not sure if you have seen this chain, but probably worth a

It is adding support to the GPIO code for controllers that can
have options to retain state across reset, not the same but
probably at least slightly related to this series.
