You'll see in the V5 patch that I followed your suggestion and now
treat the GPIO space as mandatory. The local version I have
prepared for V6 only looks for GPE0 space for ICH6 and i3100
devices.

I addressed this with V5.

In V5, I added warnings indicating which drivers are affected by
conflicts, since it was trivial with the way that I compartmentalized
gpio and watchdog mfd cell creation in that version.
