The rationale beind placing the drvdata pointer / setting in the config
struct is avoiding races in case the drvdata is needed by operations
called during the gpio_chip registration. (If the drvdata is needed for
example at the set_config() or init_valid_mask()). Providing the
drvdata only after we get the gpio_regmap from registration is too
late.

It's actually hard to see am use-case for drvdata where providing it
after gpio registration would not be racy.

Getting the drvdata does not have similar race condition as setting it.
Thus the API for getting it is Ok.
