This is gpio_chip->bgpio_lock which is a regular spinlock. AFAICT this
lock should merely serializing access to MMIO registers, so it should
not be a problem to make this lock raw.

Except for the obligatory exception:

 grgpio_irq_handler() holds that lock from the demultiplexing
 handler and invokes all handlers for the individual GPIOs which have
 interrupts enabled without ever consulting a pending register.

 That drivers usage of that lock is interesting in general, see
 grgpio_map_irq() for illustration. Quality stuff for mission critical

 But nevertheless it should just work with a raw lock on RT AFACIT.
