The countpart is in of_pinctrl_get(). I was just following the pattern
like in other drivers like gpio-rockchip. The original commit has been
tested by Florian Fainelli and me. I'm not sure if it's safe to drop it
completely.

Btw this is not the only platform affected by the gpio-ranges
compatibility issue [1].

I thought this could be very platform specific, so i implemented a hook.
But yes my initial hack modified gpiolib-of [2].
