Is hard coding the number of GPIO pins in the driver based on compatible
string the preferred approach? If so, I can make the change. Note the
current driver only has one compatible string "brcm,cygnus-gpio." To do
this, I need to introduce 3 compatible strings "brcm,cygnus-asiu-gpio",
"brcm,cygnus-ccm-gpio", "brcm,cygnus-aon-gpio", and assign hard coded
ngpios to each of them during probe.
