Oops. That's right - I am using named interrupts which are available only for ACPI 5.1, so
devices already out there will not work.

The problem here is that handling -ENOENT will not help. The gpio pins are declared in the
ACPI DSDT, but are not named. The devm_gpiod_get API will look for the named interrupt
first and fallback to searching by index if not found. Index will be 0 in both cases, this is why
the first call will succeed and the second will fail with -EBUSY.

One way to handle this would be to use indexed gpio pins instead of named gpio pins:
e.g. consider the first gpio pin to be the reset pin and the second to be the interrupt pin.
This is used in other drivers as well, e.g. zforce_ts. The problem with this approach is that
any devices that declare the gpio pins in reversed order in the DSDT will not work and give
no warning (the pins will be requested successfully, but some of the functionality will not
work). The DSDT mentioned in lists
the reset pin first, while I am working on some devices that declare the interrupt gpio pin

Another way to handle this is to treat -EBUSY like -ENOENT and not use any functionality
that depends on the gpio pins. Unfortunately, this means we will not have suspend, esd and
custom configs even if the pins are connected on the board and available in ACPI(just not

I would go with the first approach and document the order requested for the pins, but I would
like to hear what you think first. Is there a better way to do this?

Sure, that makes sense. The following patches depend on the gpio pins so they would not have
worked either.
