So gpiod_get_index() nevers return -EPROBE_DEFER, but returns -ENOENT
instead?
How can a driver distinguish between "GPIO not found" and "gpiochip driver
not yet initialized"?
Worse, so the *_optional() variants will return NULL in both cases, too, so
the caller will always fall back to optional GPIO not present?

Or am I missing something?
