It may be worth pointing out that this doesn't seem to result in any
extra memory allocation, as this only controls the GPIO numbering.

My only worry is that since the allocation is done top-down, the new
limit is going to have a userspace visible impacts (i.e. anything in
/sys/class/gpiochip* will get renumbered). I don't think anyone should
rely on this anyway (they should use the canonical bus path), but this
is worth pointing out as a potential side effect.

Otherwise,
