Yep. I understand all that.

Sorry, I forgot to mention I modified the SPMI PMIC arb code on
v4.13-rc7 to continue even though a permission fault may happen
by deleting the 'return -EPERM' lines. So the LED GPIO driver is
still probing for me, and I see that the GPIOs work regardless of
any permission problems that may have been enforced in the
hardware. I thought the permission checks that the software is
looking at to return EPERM were enforced in hardware, but that
doesn't seem to be the case. That's all I was wondering about.
