The idea is basically replacing the pdata struct by oftree node.
(subsequent patches in this queue use this by doing the board setup via
compiled-in dtb, instead of the currently hardcoded tables).

On these SoCs, the gpio setup is a little bit more complex than just
having a fixed range of registers (one per pin): the actual meaning
depends und Soc model and board type - some regs aren't even gpios.
(I'm still in progress of RE'ing the bios blob, to find out more,
eg. pinmux setups, etc). Writing to the wrong regs can cause weird
effects (actually not even sure whether it could lead to damage)

In essence: only a specific subset of the register range can be used
for GPIOs - the others shouldn't ever be touched. And this specific
subset is soc/board specific.
