This does not build for me.

The gpio-mcp23s08.c driver now has a "chip.of_node" access outside of
#ifdef CONFIG_OF, resulting in

drivers/gpio/gpio-mcp23s08.c: In function âmcp23s08_probe_oneâ:
drivers/gpio/gpio-mcp23s08.c:658:57: error: âstruct gpio_chipâ has
no member named âof_nodeâ
mcp->irq_active_high = of_property_read_bool(mcp->chip.of_node,

Should it be using "mcp->>of_node" instead? Or should the
driver just depend on OF?
