This doesn't apply on my devel branch from the GPIO tree.

Did you really use that branch?

This looks more like it was based on the linux-next tree or

BTW maybe it's better to split this patch in three:

- One that removes all users in drivers/gpio so I can
apply that to the GPIO tree, patch based on the GPIO
"devel" branch.
- One that removes all users in drivers/pinctrl based on
the pinctrl "devel" branch so I can apply that to the
pinctrl tree.
- One that removes the rest of the users, that I can maybe
just apply to the GPIO tree. This could use some ACKs
from the different maintainers, but if I don't get that I can
just apply it after some timeout.

Then we will apply the second patch actually changing
the gpiolib in the next merge window or late in the merge

What do you say?
