Hi Drew,

I remember discussing it with Linus some time ago. This may not be as
straightforward as simply adding new flags. Since PULL-UP/DOWN
resistors can - among other parameters - also have configurable
resistance, we'll probably need some kind of a structure for this
ioctl() to pass any additional information to the kernel. Since we
can't change ABI this may require adding a whole new ioctl() for
extended configuration. This in turn has to be as future-proof as
possible - if someone asks for user-space-configurable drive-strength,
the new ioctl() should be ready for it.

I should have some bandwidth in the coming days, so I'll try to give it a try.

Bart
