Does the driver provide any kind of compatibility with current gpiolib 

Let me show an example of what I mean. We have a fixed voltage regulator 
defined in device tree of an imaginary board

	vemmc_reg: voltage-regulator@0 {
	        compatible = "regulator-fixed";
		regulator-name = "VMEM_VDD_2.8V";
		regulator-min-microvolt = <2800000>;
		regulator-max-microvolt = <2800000>;
		gpio = <&gpk0 2 1 0 0>;

The gpio pin used to control status of the regulator is defined using the 
gpio property and regulator-fixed driver uses of_get_named_gpio to get the 
pin number from device tree.

Is this kind of setup also valid when using your pinctrl driver?

Best regards,
