SubjectGPIO: Fix probe() error return in gpio driver probes
From
Date
A number of drivers in drivers/gpio return -ENODEV when confronted
with missing setup parameters such as the platform data. However,
returning -ENODEV causes the driver layer to silently ignore the
driver as it assumes the probe did not find anything and was only
speculative.

To make life easier to discern why a driver is not being attached,
change to returning -EINVAL, which is a better description of the
fact that the driver data was not valid.

Also add a set of dev_dbg() statements to the error paths to provide
an better explanation of the error as there may be more that one point
in the driver.
