Sounds fine.

Note that there is a per-bank data structure "struct tegra_gpio_bank"
that could be used to store the data, so no need for any loops. You
could just store an integer per port there, and do the same "max"
algorithm as in the current patch, just on that variable. Still, just
clearing the register sounds fine too.

Hopefully true, yes:-)
