Yes, the ACPI GPIO number from GpioIO/GpioInt resources are controller
relative and we use the path from the resource to find the actual
controller.

Sure.

AFAIK no but I'll let Mathias to answer that as he knows this better.

Yeah, this patch just mimics the DT version but in general it would be
better if there was only one API to get the GPIO. There has been discussion
about adding gpio_get() or something similar which could perhaps be used to
abstract away DT or ACPI.

We use this in a driver so that we walk through the ACPI resources for a
given device (if we have the ACPI handle) and parse the GpioIO/GpioInt
resources like:

struct acpi_resource_gpio *acpi_gpio;
struct acpi_device *adev;
acpi_resource *res;
int gpio;

/* obtain the ACPI device from handle */
...
/* walk through the resources attached to adev */
...
switch (res->type) {
case ACPI_RESOURCE_TYPE_GPIO:
acpi_gpio = &res->data.gpio;
gpio = acpi_get_gpio(acpi_gpio->resource_source.string_ptr,
acpi_gpio->pin_table[0]);
...
}
