I think it's pretty clean for GPIOs these days. My colleague Manivannan
was part of cleaning it up a while back and since then it is doing
what userspace should be doing if userspace absolutely cannot
abstain from using GPIOs directly (i.e. uses the character device).

I don't know about other resources than GPIOs though.
