Subject[PATCH v5 2/4] gpiolib: Add ability to get GPIO direction
Date
Add a new get_direction() function to the gpio_chip structure.  This is
useful so that the direction of a GPIO can be determined when its
initially exported. Previously, the direction defaulted to "unknown"
regardless of the actual configuration of the GPIO.

If a GPIO driver implements get_direction(), it is called in
gpio_request() to set the initial direction of the GPIO accurately.

Changes since v1:
- Add support for "unknown" direction

Changes since v2:
Based on Wolfram's feedback:
- Use GPIOF_DIR_* flags as returns from get_direction()
- Call spin_lock_irqsave() to before setting flags

Changes since v3:
- Removed "pin" references from the commit message
- Added might_sleep() call
- Made the direction always be set in gpio_request()

Change since V4:
- None
