I didn't CC Linus and linux-gpio at this stage yet, to prevent the pfc
patches from getting applied prematurely.
But things have gone more smoothly (esp. w.r.t. board staging) than expected,
which is always pleasant.
I can resend later, I have a few more areas of sh73a0/r8a7740 cleanup
outside arch/arm/mach-shmobile waiting anyway...

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
