I've taken the updated version by Richard and made some further changes to make it fit for inclusion into avrdude. Please find the attached linuxgpio-v2.patch file against current SVN - Revision: 1130.

Hi,
a lot of embedded devices offer GPIO lines that can conveniently be used as an interface to a uC. This allows to build cheap, Ethernet-capable programmers from routers and such (for instance the Fonera or the Raspberry Pi). I refreshed the patches of Radoslav Kolev to compile with the latest SVN (1126). The patched version was tested on a Fonera device running OpenWrt, but it should work with every recent Linux flavor:

So please merge this patch.

Thanks,
Richard

Please consider this for inclusion. It will be useful for dozens of embedded platforms running OpenWrt/buildroot, e.g. routers, access points, nas devices. I am already using a hacked version of this patch for my own AVR development.

This patch adds support for a new programmer type - gpio. It uses the Linux sysfs interface to bitbang GPIO lines. Mostly useful in embedded Linux systems, where there are a lot of GPIOs available.

To enable it pass the --enable-gpio option to ./configure. Then set the appropriate GPIO numbers in avrdude.conf.

It is kind of slow, taking ~30s to upload 8K to flash on a 150MHz x86 system. It will be a lot faster writing directly to the CPU registers, but this way it works for all processors that have Linux GPIO support implemented.
