Documentation/gpio.txt mentions GENERIC_GPIO
David Brownell [Fri, 11 May 2007 05:22:17 +0000 (22:22 -0700)]
Documentation/gpio.txt should mention the Kconfig GENERIC_GPIO flag, for
platforms to declare when relevant.  This should help minimize goofs like
omitting it, or not depending on it when needed.
