Do you mean for adding tables?
We have:
devm_gpiod_get_optional() & friends.

They return NULL if the GPIO is not there, or if the
GPIO library is compiled out (as of HEAD, due to the
patch from Dmitry T.)

Aha OK. Yeah you know this way better than me so I trust
you on this.

OK sounds reasonable. Kind of like the attached device tree we
do on ARM.
