Yes, that sounds better. Indeed only a single GPIO is supported. Adding
more than one would require representing the timing between the two and
that will take us back to where we left off with the power sequences.

I actually tried that, but it looked cluttered, so I opted for the
alternative. Not that this matters all that much, because beginning with
3.13 the GPIO subsystem should be able to handle the active low flag
internally using the new gpiod_*() API. I plan on converting the driver
to use that during the next cycle.

Yes, I think it does indeed propagate to gpio_request_one(), but you're
right, it should be caught explicitly.
