Yes, I know that was the motivation for that change.

The documentation doesn't reflect that decision though. If new
bindings are supposed to be using -gpios rather than -gpio even when a
single GPIO is used, then
Documentation/gpio/board.txt should say that <function>-gpio is also
supported for backward compatibility but that is deprecated and should
not be used.
Otherwise when looking the code it seems that is just that the
documentation is outdated and that both -gpio or -gpios can be used.
