Thanks for merging this series!
Note that gpio-winbond (CONFIG_GPIO_WINBOND) driver was originally
merged using ISA_BUS_API selection as done for other ISA bus gpio drivers
by this patch, then temporary switched to the previous ("depends on")
style by commit 92a8046c9d952a to fix a circular Kconfig dependency.
So now this commit (92...) should be reverted to make gpio-winbond
driver Kconfig dependency / selection consistent with the remaining ISA
bus gpio drivers.
Unfortunately, I can't test the reversion myself because it looks like
Linus didn't push his trees yet to git.kernel.org after applying this
series (or I am not looking at the right place - linusw/linux-gpio.git?).
