I was missing a very important thing.

<linux/gpio/driver.h> is used in various subsystems.

I tested only under drivers/gpio/, but
drivers/pinctrl/ is one of the biggest source of compile errors.

(Probably I will get reports from kbuild test robot.)

So, I need to think about how to merge this (if the basic idea of this is OK).


[1] Send patches to subsystems (gpio, pinctrl, etc.) for v4.14
[2] Drop unneeded includes from linux/gpio/driver.h for v4.15

Best Regards
Masahiro Yamada
