Wow. Thanks for confirming this!

Hmm, are you sure about BG2? I remember reading it and it contains
sane values. Anyway, a proper patch for dw-apb-gpio would include
checking for sane (e.g. non-zero) values. And nr-gpios will always
stay as fall-back just because e.g. sunxi does not have the CONFIG
registers.
