/dev/mem access to gpio's were done during the sysfs days (yes to bypass
the kernel interface) but now mraa will use chardev if the kernel is
chardev supported. Still, it just behaves the way you want (/dev/mem was
also optional back then) and I couldn't find a better alternative for playing
in the userspace with multiple languages.
