Actually, I'd been meaning to fix of_gpio_count for quite a while now.
The current code uses a stupid algorithm to parse each specifier one at
a time and count how many iterations it takes before getting an error.
BLECH! A pox on me for being so lazy when I wrote it.

Anyway, your patch here spurred me on to fix it. I've just done so and
will post the patch in a few minutes. Please test and let me know if it
works for you.
