What the commit message is missing is a rationale, why is this needed?

Anything improving the sysfs is actively discouraged by me.
If it is just about staying compatible it is another thing.

Isn't it easier to just augment the existing match function to
check like this:

static int gpiochip_match_name(struct gpio_chip *chip, void *data)
{
const char *name = data;

if (!strcmp(chip->label, name))
return 0;
return !strcmp(dev_name(&chip->gpiodev->dev), name);
}

We should I guess also add some kerneldoc to say we first
match on the label and second on dev_name().

Yours,
Linus Walleij
