SSBI is a bus architecture used to access this device's register
(actually this is a subdevice in the pmic and ssbi is used to access all
the registers in the pmic).The bus driver can be found here

It didnt occur to me that the comment is only meant for buses which have
more than one gpio devices. I saw
comment "MODULbus GPIO expanders:"
comment "AC97 GPIO expanders:"
both containing single devices and thought it is a norm to add a comment
if a device running on a new bus is introduced.

Let me know if you still think I should remove
comment "SSBI GPIO expanders:" ?

Yes will fix this.

gpio_base comes from the platform data because the board file knows
where in the global gpio numbers the pm8xxx gpio start. For example if
the MSM code supports 150 gpios(0 through 149), the board file will set
gpio_base to indicate pm8xxx gpios should start from 150.

The pm8xxx_gpio_core_data is meant to be filled in by the pm8921 core.
We have different pmic chips with similar gpio implementations. For
example 8058 pmic, 8901 pmic and 8921 pmic, all have the same gpio
implementation but different number of gpio lines. The pm8xxx-gpio.c is
used for all these pmics. Hence we separated core specific gpio
information (number of gpio lines supported) from board specific gpio
information (where in the global map the gpio number for this device
