The original series had 4 patches:

- MFD core support
- regulator driver
- watchdog driver
- dts documentation

As explained in the submission comment, all patches except watchdog
one have already been applied (1 and 4 to MFD tree, 2 to
regulator). Only the watchdog support is missing and it doesn't have
compilation dependencies to other patches (the watchdog driver can't
be enabled without the MFD core support).

Do you want me to resend the entire patchset or should this go in
through watchdog?
