For all of these, maybe you can
In their mach-xxx/Kconfig so that the driver gets compiled-in by default?
Further the basic_mmio_gpio.c driver looks a bit dangerous: it only uses
__raw_* accessors for the GPIO registers, I'd very much like to replace that
with the non-__raw* versions if this is to have any generic impact.
The raw accessors can get stuck in things like write buffers and the like
IIRC, they usually won't so you don't notice first, then you start getting
all kind of real strange bugs.
