The below patch improves the documentation for the gpio-property. Stephen
Warren has a good example here:

trackpad@4b {
compatible = "atmel,maxtouch";
reg = <0x4b>;
interrupt-parent = <&gpio>;
interrupts = <TEGRA_GPIO(W, 3) IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_LOW>;
linux,gpio-keymap = <0 0 0 BTN_LEFT>;

This maps BTN_LEFT to the 4th bit of the T19 message. I haven't looked up
what GPIO number that corresponds to on the mXT224SL that he has, it varies
with the particular maXTouch device you have.

Hope this helps.
