Could you please add a better description of the problem?
I'm having some difficulties to understand the last sentence
above. Does the issue appear if some pins were configured as
inputs and were asserted high before booting the kernel, and
therefore the shadow data has been initialized with these pin

Or does the issue appear if some pin has been configured as output
first and has been set to the high value, then reconfigured as
input? Now reading the pin state will always return high even
if the actual pin state is low?

It seems the issue will appear in both cases. If so, please add
this information to the commit message.

we can reduce one in_be32() call here, i.e.

	u32 out_mask;
	out_mask = in_be32(mm->regs + GPIO_DIR);
	val = in_be32(mm->regs + GPIO_DAT) & ~out_mask;
	mpc8xxx_gc->data &= out_mask;
