So in short: you'll want to add a Kconfig option for your board,
and when it's selected you'll want to link in some EPIA-specific
int logic. That logic will register a gpio_chip, and then you'll
be able to use the standard GPIO calls (and whatever uses them).

You will also want something like the appended patch ... but do
the "select" commands when your board is selected.

Of course an entirely roll-your-own approach could work too, but
I won't recommend that here.

DEBUG ONLY -- make X86_PC use gpiolib.
It's not clear to me how the various x86-ish platforms should
be made to work here, since there seems to be no convention
that each platform type has its own <asm/arch/...> subdir.
