This is the bulk of GPIO changes for the v4.19 kernel cycle:
- Add a new API for explicitly naming GPIO consumers, when needed.
- Don't let userspace set values on input lines. While we do not
think anyone would do this crazy thing we better plug the hole
before someone uses it and think it's a nifty feature.
- Avoid calling chip->request() for unused GPIOs.
- The Mediatek MT7621 is supported which is a big win for OpenWRT
and similar router distributions using this chip, as it seems
every major router manufacturer on the planet has made products
using this chip:
- The Tegra 194 is now supported.
- The IT87 driver now supports IT8786E and IT8718F super-IO
- Add support for Rockchip RK3328 in the syscon GPIO driver.
- Handle the get/set_multiple() properly on MMIO chips with
inverted direction registers. We didn't have this problem
until a new chip appear that has get/set registers AND
inverted direction bits, OK now we handle it.
- A patch series making more error codes percolate upward
properly for different errors on gpiochip_lock_as_irq().
- Get/set multiple for the OMAP driver, accelerating these
multiple line operations if possible.
- A coprocessor interface for the Aspeed driver. Sometimes a few
GPIO lines need to be grabbed by a co-processor for doing
automated tasks, sometimes they are available as GPIO lines.
By adding an explicit API in this driver we make it possible
for the two line consumers to coexist. (This work was
made available on the ib-aspeed branch, which may be appearing
in other pull requests.)
- Implemented .get_direction() and open drain in the SCH311x
- Continuing cleanup of included headers in GPIO drivers.

gpio: it87: Add support for IT8613
This was tested on actual hardware and found to work fine, but currently
the official specifications of this chip could not be obtained to
confirm the numbers.
