Actually, what I would prefer is that these well established signal
names that appear in the x86 industry servers be enumerated in the
gpio naming document and be accepted like the original OpenPOWER
legacy names were.   This will clearly show the names that appear 
on other systems and will help reviewing things like power control 

Andrei does this sound reasonable?
