On Omap3/4 the pin function and the pull-up-down mode is configured via
the System Control Module (scm). There is a 16-bit register for each pin
but unfortunately these registers are not in a particular order. So we
need an offset table to find the correct register for each pin. The
corresponding part for each GPIO chip of the offset table is specified
via the 'scm_offset' parameter.
