[PATCH 0/3] ARM: fix three implicit module use cases fed via gpio

From: Paul Gortmaker

While working on some for-4.9 cleanups of linux/gpio/driver.h it was
found that changes there caused build failures when walking all the
ARM defconfigs, in ARM specific mach-* files.

The proposed GPIO header change is just this:

--- a/include/linux/gpio/driver.h

...which is what we've already got in ~50 other include/linux/* files to
try and keep cross contamination entanglement at a minimum.

So we uncovered three users in ARM specific files relying on the above
presence in this header, vs. dealing with it within the driver itself.

But with ARM and GPIO being different subsystems, we'll need to get
this in ARM 1st, and then wait a release before changing the GPIO
header, otherwise we'll risk triggering these three build failures.

So, if folks consider these three trivial changes OK for late in the
for-4.8 cycle, then great. Otherwise I'll resubmit the ARM parts for
for-4.9 and the GPIO bits for the one after that.

[Yes, there were gpio implicit users too, but they are easily sync'd
with the gpio header change being at the end of that series.]
