In commit c905165f5946f56dca195871641bd4e488eca24a
"gpiolib: let gpiochip_add_pin_range() specify offset"
I forgot to update the OF use of the function
gpiochip_add_pin_range().

It turns out that this reveal a weakness in the
OF range mappings: ranges cannot currently be sparse.
So put in a comment so we can fix this later.
