Ketul seems to have the GPIO mostly working so that may show up
soon. It needs feedback to the application level API right
and proper division between application and BSP.

Ultimately, I want the application level API to support
multiple sets of GPIO. Think a system with multiple
add-in boards (e.g. PCI, VME, etc). I had this on an
embedded PC with some on the baseboard and then a
multi IO addon board.

So watch for BB GPIO from Ketul and help push it to
production capable. :)
