Subject[PATCH V2 1/3] Documentation: gpio: Add details of open-drain/source configuration
Date
Adding details of open drain(open collector) and open source
(open emitter) configuration of the gpio so that client can
set the pin as open drain at the time of gpio request.

-In the future, these flags can be extended to support more properties such

+When setting the flag as GPIOF_OPEN_DRAIN then it will assume that pins is

Further more, to ease the claim/release of multiple GPIOs, 'struct gpio' is
introduced to encapsulate all three fields as:
