Thanks Stephen,

I split the changes as suggested by Tony and posted as a patch-set and not an
RFC anymore:

[PATCH 1/2] gpio/omap: maintain GPIO and IRQ usage separately [1]
[PATCH 2/2] gpio/omap: auto-setup a GPIO when used as an IRQ [2]


Could you please add Stephen Acked-by when taking the patches and also George
Cherian Tested-by that sent for this RFC. George it would be great if you can
also comment on which OMAP platform you had tested.

I cc'ed Aaro Koskinen and Paul Walmsley now which seems to have OMAP1 platforms
to test. Could you please test [1] and [2] on a OMAP1 board? These patches
solves a long standing issue we have on OMAP2+ when booting with DT and it would
be great if you can check that it does not cause regressions on OMAP1 based boards.

Thanks a lot and best regards,
