augh. ok. solutions. what are the solutions here?

What I said before.

idea: hook into devicetree gpio functions to allow script-fex gpio
functions to gain access in a separate module? that sort of thing.

Go with DT for the kernel. There is no need for two configuration
mechanisms doing the same thing. Disguise it in fex form (and
translator) if too hard for people with a DOS editior to configure.

what methods for doing that. i need proposals. 4 days on the clock.

4 days? WTF? since when did setting an ultimatum to the kernel
community work?
