gpiolib: better rmmod infrastructure

As long as one or more GPIOs on a gpio chip are used its driver should not be
unloaded.  The existing mechanism (gpiochip_remove failure) doesn't address
that, since rmmod can no longer be made to fail by having the cleanup code
report errors.  Module usecounts are the solution.

Assuming standard "initialize struct to zero" policies, this change won't
affect SOC platform drivers.  However, drivers for external chips (on I2C and
SPI busses) should be updated if they can be built as modules.
