    Actually, thinking about it I cannot see what would be wrong
    with /dev/gpio0 & friends in the first place.

    Using sysfs as swiss army knife for custom I/O does not
    seem like it would be long-term viable so thanks for this
    observation, and I think we need /dev/gpio* put on some
    mental roadmap somewhere.
