Subject[PATCH/RFC 0/2] gpio: of: Add DT overlay support for GPIO hogs
	Hi all,

As GPIO hogs are configured at GPIO controller initialization time,
adding/removing GPIO hogs in Device Tree overlays currently does not
work. Hence this patch series adds support for that, by registering an
of_reconfig notifier, as is already done for platform, i2c, and SPI

Perhaps this would be better served through a pinctrl-gpio driver?
Pinctrl is already working fine with DT overlays, as the pinctrl-*
properties are part of the slave device node, and thus looked up at
slave device node attachment time, not at pin controller initialization

In my particular use case (talking to SPI devices connected to a PMOD
connector on the RSK+RZA1 development board), the GPIO performs board
level muxing of a.o. the SPI MOSI/MISO/SCK signals. Hence the hog
really needs to be active only while talking to the SPI device, so the
muxing could (in theory) be done upon demand.
But how to describe that in DT, and implement it (using Runtime PM?)?

Thanks for your comments!
