3 regressions:
+ drivers/gpio/gpio-sx150x.c: error: field 'gpio_chip' has incomplete type: 47:35 => 47:35, 47:19
+ drivers/mfd/htc-i2cpld.c: error: field 'chip_in' has incomplete type: 55:26 => 55:19, 55:26
+ drivers/mfd/htc-i2cpld.c: error: field 'chip_out' has incomplete type: 51:26 => 51:26, 51:19

I guess these are just new fallout from the two bogus "selects GPIOLIB" in
SSB/BCMA, pulling in all GPIO drivers on platforms that don't support it,
for which I posted two patches a while ago:
