[PATCH v2] gpio / ACPI: ignore GpioInt() GPIOs when requesting GPIO_OUT_*

When firmware does not use _DSD properties that allow properly name GPIO
resources, the kernel falls back on parsing _CRS resources, and will
return entries described as GpioInt() as general purpose GPIOs even
though they are meant to be used simply as interrupt sources for the

Device (ETSA)
Name (_HID, "ELAN0001")

Method(_CRS, 0x0, NotSerialized)
Name(BUF0,ResourceTemplate ()
0x10, /* SlaveAddress */
ControllerInitiated, /* SlaveMode */
400000, /* ConnectionSpeed */
AddressingMode7Bit, /* AddressingMode */
"\\_SB.I2C1", /* ResourceSource */
GpioInt (Edge, ActiveLow, ExclusiveAndWake, PullNone,,
} )
Return (BUF0)

This gives troubles with drivers such as Elan Touchscreen driver
(elants_i2c) that uses devm_gpiod_get to look up "reset" GPIO line and
decide whether the driver is responsible for powering up and resetting
the device, or firmware is. In the above case the lookup succeeds, we
map GPIO as output and later fail to request client->irq interrupt that
is mapped to the same GPIO.

Let's ignore resources described as GpioInt() while parsing _CRS when
requesting output GPIOs (but allow them when requesting GPIOD_ASIS or
GPIOD_IN as some drivers, such as i2c-hid, do request GPIO as input and
then map it to interrupt with gpiod_to_irq).

- reworded commit message slightly to make it clearer that we only
ignore GpioInt entries when falling back to parsing _CRS
- cleared Chrome OS tags from commit message
- added Mika's acked-by
- no code changes
