So, Geert implemented get_direction for gpio-rcar, but this doesn't help
my case sadly. Because I2C is open drain, get_direction returns 'input'
:( As mentioned in a previous discussion, returning '0' and '1' from
get_direction() is confusing. But as it looks now, it also is not
enough. Or we'd need another function from which I could determine the
OUT_OPEN_DRAIN state.

For the short term, I will remove the sanity check from the I2C core and
hope the user properly set up the GPIO. It would be nice to check for it
somewhen in the future, though.

That all being said, I think this patch is still useful as is.

Thanks,
