Hi Roland,

I'm glad it worked. Some more comments:

The description for #address-cells should mention that it's always <1>.
There should be no #gpio-cells in this node.

While I suggested the gpio-lines property, I'm not sure if it's worth
including it when you don't actually use it.

You could add code to the probe function that sets the respective
fields in the gpio_chip structure, which would be particularly
interesting when you disable the unused banks by adding a
status="disabled" property (you already check for of_device_is_available()
in the loop). That will only work after all your gpio using code has
been converted to device tree probing, because it means the
hardcoded numbers don't work any more.

You can also let the user change that number if only the first X gpios
in one bank are actually used, or if some lpc32xx variants have fewer
gpio pins than others.
