Subject[PATCH] GPIO: Add gpio_lookup
GPIOs have names associated with them, but drivers cannot use those names
and must thus rely on hardwired GPIO numbers. That, in turn, makes dynamic
assignment hard to use. This patch adds a little function gpio_lookup()
which returns the GPIO number associated with a name.

This function will be used by the viafb camera driver.

+The return value will be the associated GPIO number, or -EINVAL if no GPIO
