Aha I was fooled by this:

+struct vt8500_gpio_bank_regs {
+       int     en;
+       int     dir;
+       int     data_out;
+       int     data_in;
+       int     ngpio;
+};

This needs to be named something intuitive like "vt8500_gpio_bank_regoffsets"

Some kerneldoc intsead of the opaque comment above will also improve
readability a lot:

/**
  * struct vt8500_gpio_bank_regoffsets
  * @en: offset to enable register in the bank
  * ...
