    Instead. Just expose three interfaces from it:

    struct gpio_chip
    struct irc_chip (iff it supports IRQs)
    struct pinctrl_desc

    Another option is to wait for it to be marked non-experimental
    and help fixing it up I guess, we've created it due to
    shortcomings in drivers/gpio...
