[PATCH] gpio: pca953x: Don't flip bits on PCA957x GPIO expanders when probing them.

From: Graeme Smecher
Date: Fri Aug 02 2013 - 18:27:15 EST

The pca957x driver supports a handful of I2C GPIO expanders from NXP, Maxim,
and TI. For the PCA9574 and PCA9575 devices only, the driver resets the GPIO
level and direction in the pca957x_probe function. This seems like the wrong
thing to do, since it can cause hardware bit twiddles during warm reboots when
the chip state and reset values don't match.

This kind of initialization is best left upstream (in a bootloader) or
downstream (in userspace). It's also an inconsistency across devices supported
by this driver.
