I share your view, it is very nice to have Russell's attention to detail
shaping up this driver.
I vaguely remember at some point wondering why we were
not using gpio-mmio.c at least partially
for this driver, as it share this characteristic of keeping a shadow
copy of the registers around and seem to have offsets from 0..n
in the registers, but I guess there is some specific
good reason for not using the library?
