Grr how could I miss this. I'll fix up stuff.

The former I think, the driver has only optional DT support.

I will fix up and send a new pull request when finished.

Maybe I should not have the of_node inside #ifdef CONFIG_OF in
the gpio_chip and just keep it around like we do in struct device,
that makes for less #ifdef clutter.
