This change is causing a boot regression on Tegra20 and Tegra30. After
this change was merged in mainline there was a fix for Tegra [0] that
was also needed.

On Tegra the above change causes the allocation of GPIOs to fail and
looks like this then exposes another bug somewhere else that finally
leads to a system crash.

If this is needed for stable, then we will need the fix for Tegra as well.

Cheers
Jon
