The [1] says that gpio_chip.parent should point at the "device providing
the GPIOs". That's the pdev->dev.parent in the case of this driver.
MAX77620 is an MFD PMIC device that has virtual sub-devices like GPIO
controller, PINCTRL and RTC. The MFD is the parent device that provides
the GPIOs [2].

[2]
https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/v5.8-rc3/source/arch/arm64/boot/dts/nvidia/tegra210-p2180.dtsi#L48

I think the old code was wrong and this patch is correct, please correct
me if I'm missing something.
