Right. To be added: so they can be looked up in the GPIO lookup table
using either the chip's label, or the "gpiochipN" name.

OK, so N must be the corresponding GPIO device's ID number.

return true;

Oh, didn't think of using dev_name() on the gpiodev.
Yes, with the chip->base check removed, the code can be simplified.

Or just

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

OK.
