NACK. We have frozen the sysfs ABI and we are working on a
character device to replace it for userspace access, see:
http://marc.info/?l=linux-gpio&m=144550276512673&w=2

Second question is *WHY* you want this crazy thing? Userspace
should want *events* from a file descriptor, like IIO does it for
example (on top of a proper chardev), not polling a register to
figure out if an IRQ occurred.

We need to think about the real solution to what you want to do.

Yours,
Linus Walleij
