[r11744] /dev/gpio not created for bcm947xx

Reported by: gwirth79@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Kamikaze 8.09 RC1
Component: kernel Version:

Description

The character device /dev/gpio is not being created for the bcm947xx (Netgear WGT634U) even when packages needing /dev/gpio like gpioctl are selected.

Examining the kernel .config file (./trunk/build_dir/linux-brcm47xx/linux-2.6.25.10/.config) after a build shows the following options for GPIO (grep GPIO .config):

CONFIG_GENERIC_GPIO=y
CONFIG_INPUT_GPIO_BUTTONS=m
# CONFIG_GPIO_DEVICE is not set
CONFIG_LEDS_GPIO=y

For some reason the CONFIG_GPIO_DEVICE is not being set, so gpio_dev.c never gets compiled.

This is in trunk Revision 11744
