For userspace access this requires sysfs kernel support (CONFIG_SYSFS) and the sysfs filesystem mounted which is standard for most linux systems including the Gateworks BSP's. This framework allows boards to define GPIO configuration (direction, direction-changeable, user-friendly name, state, and userspace configurable).
