Thanks for getting that. Overlooked it.

The thing about the way the platform driver is now is it can wait until the subordinate modules get loaded and it will register the relevant devices then...

It's conceivable that one might want LEDs but not the reset button, or vice versa.

It might make sense to have the GPIO_CS5535 driver be selected, but also I'm good with the platform driver being statically linked in, and the LED or GPIO drivers being insmod'd.

I figure best to KISS and allow people to have as small a static kernel as they want, and then build up functionality with modules.
