NULL check in practice discards the _optional part of gpiod_get(). So,
either you use non-optional variant and decide how to handle an
errors, or user _optional w/o NULL check.

I'm only concerned if it would be an infinite defer in the case when
driver will never appear.
But I don't remember the details.
