It's been in linux-next since April 29. The problem is that it depends
on the following commit which is in the mfd tree, which gets merged
into linux-next before the gpio tree. The following commit removes the
prototype that it breaks on. That is why linux-next didn't catch it,
but it doesn't change the fact that it never should have been
committed that way.

And, no, I didn't do a full build test of that tree before sending it.
Linusw has been a huge help and offloaded a bunch of the gpio work and
keeping on top of the gpio driver patches. Not his fault though, I got
lazy seeing that it had already been in linux next and so didn't build

Very well. I do apologize am sorry for causing you extra work. There
is another series of GPIO changes that removes GENERIC_GPIO. Alex
Courbot has done all the leg work of getting them prepared, dealing
with the cross-tree conflicts and getting it into linux-next for
testing. That branch is completely separate from the other GPIO
changes. I'll get him to send you the pull request directly and you
can decide whether or not to pull it.
