Wow look at that.

This looks very much like Geert's just invented GPIO aggregator.
But in hardware!

See:
drivers/gpio/gpio-aggregator.c

I think Geert is intending to add bindings to the aggregator, and
while I do think this should be its own driver (in drivers/usb) these
bindings and whatever Geert want to use for the aggregator
should certainly be the same.

Geert what do you think?

Here is the actual driver:

Linus Walleij
