If you issue gpiod_put() you release the GPIO hande so something else
can go in and grab the GPIO and assert the reset.

This is not what you want to make possible: you want to hold this gpiod handle
as long as the driver is running. devm_gpiod_get_optional() will do the
trick if you don't want to put the handle under explicit control.

Yours,
