Re: GPIO subsystem and interrupts -- no way to do rising & falling edge on same pin?

This is something that, for example, the Raspberry Pi?s SoC can do (and something I have use for in my application).  But alas, it seems as if the presence of GPIO_PIN_FALLING indicates falling, and the lack of it indicates rising.

So it looks like we'll run out of bits soon anyway. What about expanding the
interface and add the needed compat code (COMPAT_80) ?
