SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/7] gnss: add new GNSS subsystem

Actually... no, what you done is not GNSS subsystem. It is generic
subsystem for a link + some controls, typically for power.

Yes, that setup is common for GPS receivers, but it is there also for
modems (droid 4: usb + gpios) and bluetooth dongles (n900: serial +
gpios).

Best regards,
Pavel
