I have the same problem for drivers/gpio/gpio-nomadik. which
does all weird kind of stuff. So you're not alone.

The reason why this is not in the subsystem as of today is that
we cannot push hundreds of kilobytes of upfront design with no drivers
using it, the current patch set in for-next is big enough as it is right
now.

But we can start thinking about the next step, so lets design the
generic pin control stuff we need and merge it to -next early so
we can work on it next kernel cycle.
