Using GPIO

Hello all,
I'm trying to use the Xilinx GPIO from a user program.
Since I haven't managed to compile their example (simon.c is given without a 
makefile), I wanted to try using /dev/gpio...

So I added
/dev/gpio0  c  666  0  0  10  185 -  -  -
to device_table.txt when I generated my root filesystem with buildroot, but 
apparently this leads nowhere as it's not visible in /proc/devices.

Is there some example or tutorial on how to use CONFIG_XILINX_GPIO ? Either 
as a device or as API calls...
