This patch adds EFUSE support driver which is used by other drivers

There are some efuses these fuses store things like calibration data,

read out this data for configuring the driver.

Change in v2:
1. Rebase to 4.4-rc1
2. Modify the driver Makefile for more consistent with other drivers
3. Modify the compatible string to "mediatek,mt8173-efuse" and

Do you still plan to queue this for v4.5?

Sorry guys, for the long delay in replying your pings, got busy with
regular office stuff :-)

Yes, It should go in v4.5, I did send request with my sign-off to Greg,
he should take it via char-misc tree.

I can't see this patches in the char-misc tree [1].
Can you please double check?

Hi Matthias,
Thanks for the patience. You should expect them to see after v4.5-rc1,
that's when Greg said he would push the patches.

I'm a bit puzzled. Wouldn't that mean that they will get into mainline for v4.6.
I just want to know if I can take patch 3/3 through my v4.5-next branch (which eventually will be merged into v4.6-rc1) or if I have to wait.
