    The idea was specifically to replace the need to call irq_to_gpio(i2c->irq).
    If we did just rename it plain "gpio" and allow it to be used for anything,
    then that does indeed start looking more like device-specific platform data.

    I guess it sounds like consensus is to go that way. It does seem like that
    will end up creating a bunch more device-specific platform-data files though.
    I wonder if adding IORESOURCE_GPIO would make sense so this could be handled
    in a generic way without custom platform data types?
