And while doing this and figuring the pro/cons of those methods, I stumbled over this commit:

	gpio: pca953x: Get platform_data from OpenFirmware

It looks to me that it missed all people involved in OF/DT-development and now we
have undocumented and IMO questionable properties in the kernel.

Conclusions I draw:

a) we better solve the pdata-problem rather sooner than later ;)
b) we need to spread the word about devicetree-discuss
c) more documentation may help, too

I know, 'send patches'...
