When mfp.o is disabled like this, I get a link error in two drivers
using the exported interface:

ERROR: "mfp_set_groupg" [drivers/spi/spi-nuc900.ko] undefined!
ERROR: "mfp_set_groupi" [drivers/input/keyboard/w90p910_keypad.ko] undefined!

Why remove mfp modules? this multifunction pin driver should be used for those two drivers, if no mfp_set_groupX, I don't think driver can work.

Now mfp has standard driver subsystem?

Any idea for a better migration strategy?
