Yeah, my point is that hci_bcm.c by design can work without GPIOs (looks
like it might be hardware without dedicated GPIO lines, though I'm quite
in doubts there is one exists) which makes GPIOLIB requirement
optional. Thus, platform code in question (this patch) should cope with
absence of gpiod_add_lookup_table().

The question is what by your opinion is the best approach here (I put
them in order of my preferences):
1) make a stub for gpiod_add_lookup_table() for !GPIOLIB case for all
2) as in 1) but inside this very user;
3) uglify Makefile with something like ifeq $(CONFIG_GPIOLIB,y);
4) create a Kconfig option for this very user (the worst variant I could
even think about).
