  Backport support for ACPI GPIO interrupts for i2c-hid devices

Bug description:

  On some platforms HID over I2C uses GPIO interrupts instead of
  directly connected to the IO-APIC. Without ACPI GPIO interrupts
  support, i2c-hid can not find IRQ when probing the device, and shows
  the following message:

  i2c_hid i2c-SYNA7508:00: Could not register for SYNA7508:00 interrupt, irq = -1, ret = -22
  i2c_hid: probe of i2c-SYNA7508:00 failed with error -22

  So far we've found this issue on some SKL platforms, and one BSW


  There's a fix in mainline v4.1-rc1, which add the support for ACPI
  GPIO interrupts for i2c-hid module.

      HID: i2c-hid: Add support for ACPI GPIO interrupts


  1. Boot with 4.1-rc1 kernel and patched 3.19 kernel
  2. Both touchscreen should work
