All GPIO_DS8..GPIO_DS13 are configured as external IRQ by default. So
if anyone want to use one of them as gpio mode, they can drop add the
sbgpio node to their DTB board-specific, and remove that GPIO from
interrupts property. As example below I want to leave GPIO_DS8 as gpio
mode, so I remove it as below:

/* Board-specific: exclude GPIO_DS8 to leave it as GPIO */
&sbgpio {
       interrupts =    <0x0 0x29 0x1>,         /* GPIO_DS9 */
                       <0x0 0x2a 0x1>,         /* GPIO_DS10 */
                       <0x0 0x2b 0x1>,         /* GPIO_DS11 */
                       <0x0 0x2c 0x1>,         /* GPIO_DS12 */
                       <0x0 0x2d 0x1>;         /* GPIO_DS13 */
