It's important that you note in the driver, commit blurb and maybe even
Kconfig that these GPIOs are output-only. Someone could get confused.

You should implement .direction_output() and return 0, and implement
.direction_input and return negative error code. As it is now, it will
seem like input is working, while it's not, right?
