mh by migrating to newer gpiod interface platform data is no longer
needed (instead the boardfile would need a gpiod_lookup_table). That
way all of the dirty code is in the board file and will be removed
once the time comes. See for example rx51_fmtx_gpios_table.

Note: This is independent of wl12xx changes, since N900 uses wl1251.
