The downside is that you change the semantic of gpio_get_value (and
gpio_set_value I assume?). But as calling gpio_get_value with a gpio
that gpio_cansleep() is an error anyhow, so I think that's OK. The big
pro is that the API is simplified.

I will happily look at such a patch and give my comments.
