Evaluation boards are important because they set a pattern that customers
will use.

Please consider to include nodes for all GPIO blocks used in this
evaluation board, and add:

gpio-line-names = "foo", "bar" ...;

See for example

It's good to have because probably you guys have proper schematics and
know rail names of the stuff connected to those GPIO lines and so on,
so you can give the lines proper names.

It will be helpful for people using the reference design, especially with the
new character device, and also sets a pattern for people doing devices
based on the reference design and we really want to do that.
