I considered moving the documentation, but realized:

1st part is URLs for datasheets. Well, URLs easily grow outdated and those
datasheets are easily to find using your favourite search engine.

2nd part is a short description of the chips which is IMHO sufficently covered
in drivers/gpio/Kconfig.

3rd part (Detection) and 4th part (sysfs-interface) are obsolete for the new
drivers. The gpiolib interface again is covered in Documentation/gpio.txt

So I concluded to simply drop the documentation.

Regards,

   Wolfram
