gpiolib: dynamic gpio number allocation

If gpio_chip->base is negative during registration, gpiolib performs dynamic
base allocation.  This is useful for devices that aren't always present, such
as GPIOs on hotplugged devices rather than mainboards.  (This behavior was
previously specified but not implemented.)

To avoid using any numbers that may have been explicitly assigned but not yet
registered, this dynamic allocation assigns GPIO numbers from the biggest
number on down, instead of from the smallest on up.
