I presume with this you mean that e.g. the 835 laptops doesn't sport a
QCOM0217?

Last time we discussed this the _only_ offender was the loop issuing a
get_direction() on all descs towards the end of
gpiochip_add_data_with_key()

Yeah that looks quite different, so I'm not sure how to tie that into
the current driver. But I'm fine with adding this for now, if PEP brings
a different approach we can always rip this out later.
