i asked this because we wanted to send the source codes of
CSR( to upstream as i have told you in LDS. it
looks like we need to follow the below new changes to make our source
codes acceptable?
1. arm device tree
2. new pinmux framework from Linus Walleij
3. move GPIO from plat/mach to drivers/gpio?
