gpio: Add helpers for optional GPIOs
Introduce gpiod_get_optional() and gpiod_get_index_optional() helpers that make it easier for drivers to handle optional GPIOs. Currently in order to handle optional GPIOs, a driver needs to special case error handling for -ENOENT, such as this: gpio = gpiod_get(dev, "foo"); if (IS_ERR(gpio)) { if (PTR_ERR(gpio) != -ENOENT) return PTR_ERR(gpio); gpio = NULL; } if (gpio) { /* set up GPIO */ } With these new helpers the above is reduced to: gpio = gpiod_get_optional(dev, "foo"); if (IS_ERR(gpio)) return PTR_ERR(gpio); if (gpio) { /* set up GPIO */ } While at it, device-managed variants of these functions are also provided.
