SubjectRe: [PATCH V3 2/2] gpio: add STA2X11 GPIO block

I see your point. I attacked pinctrl some time ago, but it is overly
complex for this simple stuff. We have static configuration that is
enacted at boot, and that's it. Using pinctrl would mean much more
code (and more bugs, as a side effect) for no real advantage. I
appreciate the flexibility of pinctrl, and I see it's really good to
have a way to describe complex SoC hardware, but it just isn't always
needed.

Besides, it's still marked as experimental, which on one side is not
reassuring about its stability, and on the other means my whole
chipset should depend on experimental as a consequence.

thanks
