I considered moving the documentation, but realized:
1st part is URLs for datasheets. Well, URLs easily grow outdated and those
datasheets are easily to find using your favourite search engine.
2nd part is a short description of the chips which is IMHO sufficently covered
3rd part (Detection) and 4th part (sysfs-interface) are obsolete for the new
drivers. The gpiolib interface again is covered in Documentation/gpio.txt
So I concluded to simply drop the documentation.
