No, really we should. The GPIO APIs are stubbed out when not in use for
a very good reason, think about the usability here. The goal here isn't
to litter the code with ifdefs - if architectures aren't able to keep up
with API changes they should convert to using gpiolib so this stuff
happens automatically (indeed, I can't think of any good reason for an
architecture to not be using gpiolib at this point).

I *strongly* suggest looking at git if you want to find relevant people
to mail; the internal documentation in the code really isn't a terribly
useful guide, the authors listed in the code often bear no relation to
who's actually working on it at the current time.

You've clearly not looked at MAINTAINERS for this one.
