I guess I have to live with this approach, but I'd like to - if possible -
address my pet issue.

- It is OK that the HW get set up as GPIO input by the IRQ
request function alone. (Through gpio_irq_type I guess).

- When a second caller calls omap_gpio_request() it should
be OK as well, but only if the flags corresponds to the
previously enabled input mode. Else it should be

- The same should happen for _set_gpio_direction() if a pin
previously set up for IRQ gets a request to be used as

If this cannot be tracked in the driver, it is certainly a candidate
for something that gpiolib should be doing. And then I'm open to
solutions to how we can do that.

If this needs to be applied pronto to fix the regression I'm
happy with that too, if we add a big boilerplate stating the above
problem and that it needs to be *fixed* at some point.

But in either case I want this to be tested on OMAP1 before
I apply it, as in a Tested-by tag.
