Er. That was supposed to say "why the underscores?"
They are in the original code. So why not?
As a general rule, you shouldn't prefix things with underscores in C.
(C9x 7.1.3: "All identifiers that begin with an underscore and
either an uppercase letter or another underscore are always reserved
for any use.")
The variable __map is a "hidden" variable that is not used in the
driver itself, it rather provides the memory for the pinmap to the
gpio subsystem, i.e. it's for private gpio(4) usage. It is done like
this in all GPIO drivers.
