True.

I'm not sure this is really useful to backport them to stable since
blackfin users never complained about it (plus, blackin arch is now
gone), but okay.

Fair enough.

Well, the gpio-addr stuff is just here to support platforms that do not
have enough ADDR lines (or iomem address space) to address the whole
device. I see it as an 'extension' of the physmap logic, which is why I
think it makes sense to have this logic in the physmap driver instead
of creating a completely new driver.

That'd be great!

Thanks,
