It looks like INT344B device is neither present nor available. This device isn't in the list returned by above grep. 
Its status actually returns 0. What could be reasons for that?

It's good to know there is C library for handling gpio. But this is user-land thing. I'm interested in kernel's means to handle gpios. And for experiments I'd rather use tools/gpio/. Anyway, I can figure out how to use kernel API. At the moment though I need to understand what's wrong with my platform and how can I fix/make it work.
