When I did it I was sufficiently convinced that I was the only one patching
the quirks in gpiolib-of.c that merge window so I just included it as
a hunk in the driver patch. If there will be some more patches to that
file I guess some separate patch(es) for gpiolib-of.c is needed, maybe
an immutable branch for those if it becomes a lot.
