Export the gpiod_request() and gpiod_free() symbols, so modular GPIO
library code can make use of these functions.

ERROR: "gpiod_free" [drivers/gpio/gpiolib-fwd.ko] undefined!
ERROR: "gpiod_request" [drivers/gpio/gpiolib-fwd.ko] undefined!

Alternatives:
  - Force gpiolib-fwd builtin,
  - Call gpio_{,request,free}(desc_to_gpio(...)) instead, as the legacy
    functions are exported,
  - Call gpiod_put() instead of gpiod_free(), as the former is a simple
    exported wrapper around the latter.  Unfortunately there's no such
    alternative for gpiod_request().
