Hi Randy,

I ended up not pushing this one to Linus. Turns out it causes other
breakage on other platforms that don't include include/linux/gpio.h.
Since I don't have confidence that I'll be able to find all the
offenders, I'm dropping it. I recommend making any drivers that are
breaking on these symbols depend on GPIOLIB. Platforms not using
gpiolib are strongly discouraged now anyways, and there only a handful
of files in drivers/ that reference GPIOF_*.
