I saw the picture, it's very nice. Whatever this is, it's not an
MFD. It's a device which is located on an MFD. There is far too much
functional (the operative word here) code contained in this patch.
I'm not sure where this device should live, but I'm keen for MFD not
to become a dumping ground for ill-fitting devices. Happy for you to
create resources and register it from here, but the bulk for the
functional driver needs to live somewhere else.
