Bug Description

[Impact]
On Advantech UNO-420 development platform, we need a generic way to set the pin mode.
Upstream would like us to leverage ACPI override method to change the modes, but in Ubuntu core, we can't generate a new initramfs and boot up with the generated initramfs.

[Fix]
Add a module parameter to assign pin modes while loading ad5593r driver.

[Test]
Verified on Advantech UNO-420 platform.

[Regression Potential]
Low, it checks the length of the passed parameter, and checks every bytes in it to make sure it's a valid argument.
