[PATCH 11/15 v3] gpio: Add devm_gpiod_unhinge()




This adds a function named devm_gpiod_unhinge() that removes
the resource management from a GPIO descriptor.

I am not sure if this is the best anglosaxon name for the
function, no other managed resources have an equivalent
currently, but I chose "unhinge" as the closest intuitive
thing I could imagine that fits Rusty Russell's API design
criterions "the obvious use is the correct one" and
"the name tells you how to use it".

The idea came out of a remark from Mark Brown that it should
be possible to handle over management of a resource from
devres to the regulator core, and indeed we can do that.

ChangeLog v2->v3:
- Make sure to bail out of gpiod_unhinge() if the descritor
  passed in is NULL or an error pointer.
- Accept of devres_destroy() returns -ENOENT: if we have
  nonexclusive GPIOs, we may attempt to remove resource
  management from the same descriptor multiple times.
ChangeLog v1->v2:
- New patch to be able to hand over GPIO descriptors to
  the regulator core.
- Mark: feel free to apply this to the regulator tree with
  the regulator tree with the rest.
