If we are freeing the IRQs related to gpio and resetting the gpio, then
I don't see why we should not. We should not leave the debounce clock on
if these gpios are no longer being used.

However, with this we could be leaving the debounce clock on longer than
needed. I think we need to call _gpio_dbck_disable() each time we free a
gpio and this function will determine if it can turn off the debounce

In fact, there appears to be another bug in the current driver, that we
do not clear the debounce_en register when freeing the gpio. Your patch
addresses this, but I think that debounce should be disabled when a gpio
is freed and not just when the last one is freed.

Also, with the above change, can't we still run into the original
problem? In other words, if a gpio is freed, but there is still another
one active in the back that is not using debounce, then we could restore
a incorrect debounce context because we have not clean-up the debounce

So may be we need to add a _clear_gpio_debounce() function and
call this when freeing a gpio.
