A bit late to the game here but this looks like the chip has some
regulator control functionality as well as monitoring functionality (and
the product page on the Summit web site suggests so also). This means
that when fully supported in software the driver would cross multiple
subsystems so it might make sense to start off with a MFD rather than
direct I2C control?

If the non-monitoring functionality can't be controlled from software
this isn't an issue.
