Subjectgpio-pxa: getting GPIOs by devicetree phandle broken

Commit 7b8792b ("gpiolib: of: Correct error handling in
of_get_named_gpiod_flags") seems to break the ability to use DT
bindings to reference this driver's GPIOs by phandle for banks above
the first.

The issue is that gpio-pxa registers multiple gpio chips - one for
each bank - but they're all associated with the same DT node. The new
behavior in of_gpiochip_find_and_xlate() causes gpiochip_find() to
bail after the first chip matches and its xlate function fails.
Previously it would try all chips associated with the phandle and
pxa_gpio_of_xlate() would fail until it was called with the correct

I think the new behavior of of_gpiochip_find_and_xlate() is reasonable,
so I see a couple ways of fixing gpio-pxa.

1. Require child nodes in DT for each bank
2. Refactor gpio-pxa to only register one gpiochip

There was a previously undocumented binding that required child nodes
but it was removed by 5dbb7c6 ("gpio: pxa: remove dead code"). It's
still present in the DT files that use "marvell,mmp-gpio." Here's an
example from pxa168.dtsi.

gpio@d4019000 {
compatible = "marvell,mmp-gpio";
#address-cells = <1>;
#size-cells = <1>;


gcb0: gpio@d4019000 {
reg = <0xd4019000 0x4>;

I may proceed with option 1 since there's some precedent, but I'd
appreciate any input.
