gpio: add bt8xxgpio driver
This adds the bt8xxgpio driver. The purpose of the bt8xxgpio driver is to export all of the 24 GPIO pins available on Brooktree 8xx chips to the kernel GPIO infrastructure. This makes it possible to use a physically modified BT8xx card as cheap digital GPIO card.

+ help
+ The BT8xx frame grabber chip has 24 GPIO pins than can be abused
+ as a cheap PCI GPIO card.
+ This chip can be found on Miro, Hauppauge and STB TV-cards.
+ The card needs to be physically altered for using it as a
+ GPIO card. For more information on how to build a GPIO card
+ from a BT8xx TV card, see the documentation file at
+ Documentation/bt8xxgpio.txt
+ If unsure, say N.
