Saw that, looks good :) Need to post it also to lakml BTW.

Yes please. Otherwise we'll have more of the "crazy churn" in
arch/arm/*omap*/ and the runtime PM patches should apply easily
in drivers/gpio too.

Let's do this after the consolidation and move to drivers/gpio.
This way any additions can be reviewed by the drivers/gpio maintainers.

Looks like you got this already done :)

With this part there may be more comments from the drivers/gpio
maintainers so we need to get to this point ASAP.

If so, please put all the consolidation patches into a separate
branch with absolutely zero additional new code. And let's merge
those branches into linux-omap devel-cleanup branch on regular
basis for testing.
