This is strange. If probe fails the device should stay unbound and it
shouldn't enter the if block in __device_release_driver at all.

That's wrong. The usage of gpio_get_optional and friends means that the
gpio is optional for the *driver*, that is there are devices that make
use of said gpio and others don't. For the devices where the gpio is
specified its usage is not optional. So it must not be ignored e.g. by
GPIOLIB=n configurations. IMHO the best would be to unconditionally
enable that part of GPIOLIB such that the _optional variants do the
following with GPIOLIB=n:

if a GPIO is specified:
return -ENOSYS
else:
return NULL

Best regards
Uwe
