[PATCH v2 0/5] mfd: Make max drivers explicitly non-modular

From: Paul Gortmaker
Date: Thu Jun 02 2016 - 20:40:48 EST

For anyone new to the underlying goal of this cleanup, we are trying to
make driver code consistent with the Makefiles/Kconfigs that control them.

This means not using modular functions/macros for drivers that can never
be built as a module. Some of the other downfalls this leads to are:

(1) it is easy to accidentally write unused module_exit and remove code
(2) it can be misleading when reading the source, thinking it can be
modular when the Makefile and/or Kconfig prohibit it
(3) it requires the include of the module.h header file which in turn
includes nearly everything else, thus adding to CPP overhead.
(4) it gets copied/replicated into other drivers and spreads like weeds.

There are quite a few in the mfd space, so rather than send a large
series, I'll try and batch them up into reasonable sized queues. To that
end, here we fix up all the maxim drivers as the 1st mfd batch.

As always, the option exists for someone with the hardware and the desire
to extend the functionality to make any given driver tristate. But given
the number of these tree wide and the fact that I can't test that new
extended functionality in all cases, I just make the code consistent with
the existing Kconfig/Makefile settings that restrict them to "bool".

Build tested on linux-next for arm, arm64 and x86-64 to ensure no typos
or similar issues crept in.


[v2: - drop two patches for drivers getting tristate conversion from JMC.
- fix up shortlog/subjects to match existing mfd style/convention.
- rebase to current linux-next and redo build testing. ]
