I understand that's the default condition, but presumably there's no
compelling reason for the mfp configuration functions to be withheld (I
was simply trying to obey the obsolescence instructions in pxa2xx-gpio.h!)

As for bringing this driver in tree? Not a great deal of point, in this
particular case, but I have no problem with doing that.

P.S. For anybody watching this with linux-arm-kernel access -- my
messages are sticking despite having apparently subscribed...
