Selected GPIOs (defined as child nodes in DT) may be exported as
symlinks to user space (using gpiod_export_link())

The advantages of this are:
* Userspace no longer needs to know the GPIO number (which may
vary with other hardware and with kernel version due to dynamic
allocation)
* Userspace can be prevented from changing the direction if that
does not make sense from a hardware perspective.
