So this will break the driver, since gpiochip_add() sets the data
pointer to NULL.

These kind of changes are getting too complicated to do without
something to test against. We had a module simulator at one point, but
not sure what the state of that is now.

I appreciate the effort though, and since we already started, let's try
to finish, but please drop this patch for now.
