So by just looking at that we can see that this is yet another
instance of papering
over the fact that the Linux GPIO numbers are global to the kernel and not
per-chip, as would be preferred.

Can you please contribute to the parallel discussion on how to get rid of
the global GPIO numberspace, thread named:
"How about a gpio_get(device *, char *) function?"

Yours,
Linus Walleij
