This is a hack and should be a last resort. Even then I'd avoid it.

Certainly you should avoid shipping with /dev/mem enabled.

Perhaps, though maybe you should follow up on whether you can drive 
GPIOP1 when it's in pass-through mode. My recollection is you cannot, 
at least for the AST2500 and earlier, in which case both P0 and P1 are 
effectively inputs for the purpose of the GPIO controller despite P1 
being a physical output. This behaviour is probably more confusing than 
it is helpful.

There's also option 3 which is to emulate the pass-through in software, 
as I outlined in my previous email.

Hope that helps,
