Ok, I'll split on a next version.

Yet, it would be good to have all tree drivers applied via the same tree,
as those drivers are needed altogether in order for this PMIC to work:

- The SPMI controller driver talks with the hardware and provides
support via the SPMI bus calls;
- The MFD PMIC driver binds into the SPMI bus and provide support
for interrupts. It also has support for binding the regulator
- The regulator driver needs the PMIC driver (which in turn needs
the SPMI bus) in order to be able to talk with the hardware and
set the power supplied.

That's basically why I opted to send the entire series altogether.
