I am wondering whether we could move the {gpio_base, ngpio, irq_shared}
part into the gpio-dwapb.c driver and use either the ACPI-based or
platform_device_id-based matching to get the device-specific resources
info through the driver_data field. By doing so you wouldn't need to
introduce a new "snps,gpio-base"-like property and propagate
software_node-based properties, but still you could get rid of the
dwapb_platform_data structure since all the info would be locally
available.

If ACPI-based matching doesn't uniquely address the Quark GPIO node,
then you could just replace the intel_quark_mfd_cells[0].name with
something like "gpio-dwapb-quark", which then by the MFD core will be
copied to the corresponding platform_device->name due to calling
platform_device_alloc() with cell-name passed. That name will be used
to match a platform_driver with id_table having that new name added.
