With ak8974 chip, it is possible to have similar functionality without interrupt
pin. This is most probably true also for ak8975 chip. It is not good to assume
that everyone uses interrupt pin if the same functionally can be achieved
another way. I mean polling via I2C instead of checking GPIO state after the
sleep.

Based on the this driver it seems that ak8974 and ak8975 are quite similar, but
also there are many differences like different register map. Maybe combining
these two makes implementation just messy.
