The GPIO pin space is one global space, and the only thing
the struct pinctrl_gpio_range does is to say that this pin range
is handled by this chip. You can register several ranges to the
same pin controller.

Then the pin control driver gets called like this:

pin_request(pctldev, pin, gpiostr, true, range);
ops->gpio_request_enable(pctldev, gpio_range, pin);

In this case you know that pin is an index into the range
supplied, note that we always get the range into the driver.

These ranges are defined by the driver as well, and it has
an .id field. Thus the driver shall add/subtract whatever offset
it needs to map that GPIO pin into a proper pin number,
there can be so many strange ways of doing this that the
pin control framework is not dealing with it.

So I think this should be done by the driver, and a clever
way is to use the .id field of the range as index to offset
arrays etc.

Thanks, fixed it.
