SubjectRe: [PATCH v7] usb:serial:pl2303: add GPIOs interface on PL2303
Hi Johan Hovold.

Another two questions.

I assume you mean any pl2303 variant, not any device type, because
no device in drivers/gpio has common setup code except many of them
use struct gpio_chip.

Instead of assume code works for all situation firstly, test and write
code for only one type device, and make code become generic when we find
it works for others' type.

I don't known which way is better.

Thanks very much for your patient review !!
