Well, the only reason I see against putting it into drivers/mfd is that
this place is becoming a dumping ground for stuff that doesn't have a
real home anywhere else. On the other hand, this one would fit better
than a lot of drivers that are already there, and it would actually remove
the need for a global include/linux/*.h header file as the interface.
