Well, the "-gpio" variant is deprecated, but still supported by
devm_gpiod_get_index_optional(), and there are active users in upstream
DTS files.

My main objection is (trying to) replicate the matching logic inside
gpiolib.c, causing subtle semantic differences. And keeping it consistent,
of course.

It would be nice if this could be fixed inside acpi_find_gpio(), so
users don't need to be updated. There may be other subsystems where
the difference between DT and ACPI may cause issues, unbeknownst.

Gr{oetje,eeting}s,
