Looking at the patch this just trades using one global (dev) for another
(tegra_gpio_chip), so when the other globals are removed, you'll need to
go back and change tegra_gpio_irq_set_type() again to remove use of the
global tegra_gpio_chip.

Still, this /does/ remove one global so I guess it's OK. I don't feel
terribly strongly, especially if you're going to send more patches soon
to remove the other globals. I'll leave the call to Linus.
