I have a tester testing the changes for to the 104-IDIO-16 and GPIO-MM
GPIO drivers on real hardware. I don't have access to the other three
devices so I've only compile tested and loaded them in a VM to verify;
I'll send out a request to ACCESIO and WinSystems to see if they have
engineers willing to test these changes for their respective devices.

I've also refactored the code in this patch series to simplify the
changes in these patches. It should make the changes much easier to
review so I'll release it in a v2 submission once the series is ready.
