Are you sure this is what you want to do? We don't usually support
'boards' per say. Instead we support 'devices', then pull each of
those devices together using some h/w description mechanism.
Board files are so yesterday!
Besides, this is MFD, where we support single pieces of silicon which
happen to support multiple devices. I definitely don't want to support
You might want to re-think the naming and your (sales) pitch.

Why have you included this? I don't see the use of the MFD framework
anywhere. So what makes this an MFD?
I'm going to stop here, as I think I need more of an explanation so
what you're trying to achieve with this driver.
