could you or Andrew provide content of /debug/gpio before/after?
And ls /sys/class/gpio/?

Not only base, but label also - /sys/class/gpio/gpiochip0/label, as this is
the way to find proper GPIO chip in sysfs using legacy GPIO ABI.

Linus, this platform is old and most of the users do not use new ABI (chardev),
so we could try change this, but need to be prepared for regressions reports.
