I am not very familiar with the gpio-hog concept, what I understand is:

"gpio-hog" are a description of gpios config to be initialized early on.
The main difference with classic gpio is the omission of the phandle of
the gpio controller (since gpio-hog are expected to be a child node of
gpio controller). Correct me if I am wrong.

In this case the current version of of_hog_gpio fails since it calls
of_parse_phandle_with_args which expect the gpio to start with the controller

My best guess would be to rework of_hog_gpio to not use of_parse_phandle_with_args
and probably not gpio_of_xlate

This sounds easier than a sync of barebox gpio code with linux.
