As I was testing this driver, I noticed that output settings for GPIO LEDs,
connected to the RTL8231, weren't being properly set. The actual LED brightness
didn't correspond to the one reported by sysfs. Changing the operation order
fixed this.

However, the vendor code uses I2C bitbanging quite extensively on these chips,
so I decided to have another look.

From u-boot on my device, I can manipulate the RTL8231 registeres relatively
easily. I performed the following short tests:
* Set pin to input, pull pin high, write output low, change direction: pin
output changes to low value
* Set pin to input pull pin low, write output high, change direction: pin
output changes to high value

Which seems to indicate that I _can_ set output values on input pins... I'll
need to look into this in more detail when I have a bit more time, later this
