The core properly calls this function but not in the way expected.
This driver implements three banks of 32 gpios each internally using
one gpiochip per bank, all of them in the same device. So the core
code you are pointing out here duplicates the same names along the
three gpiochips which is not the expected behaviour. So implementing
in this way and setting names at least reserved avoids the core code
to be run and also avoids the duplication getting expected behaviour
for all the banks and each line friendly name.

Best regards,
Sergio Paracuellos
