Not really a problem with this patch exactly, but FYI you're only making
this optional for the non-DT case. For device tree, this is kinda hard
to do, since the current binding suggests we retrieve the GPIOs based on
index position, not by name. So if you leave one off...I guess we well
just be off-by-1 on the indeces until we hit a non-optional one...which
I guess is "CLE".

If we wanted this to work for DT, we'd need to extend this driver (and
binding doc) to support requesting GPIOs by name.
