Yes, that's my point either we get 1:1 mapping between slot and GPIOs
or have a possibility to read back from some register(s) the actual
status of all of them, otherwise it's a bad design. Sorry if I wasn't
clear about it.

Yes, unfortunately this is the case. We need to keep somewhere the
list to support old firmwares (see hci_bcm.c as an example how BIOS
can screw things up).
Soonish we start _DSD in BIOSes in a correct way (ha-ha), better for everyone.

Use one table for one half and another for the rest.
