Subject[patch 4/4] MFD: Change mfd platform device usage to wrapper platform_device
This patch changes the mfd core behaviour to wrapper the platform_device
it creates in an struct mfd_device which contains the information
about the cell that was created.

1) The creation of the resource list and then passing it to the
platform_device_add_resources() causes the allocation of a
large array on the stack as well as copying the source data
twice (it is copied from the mfd_cell to the temporary array
and then copied into the newly allocated array)

2) We can wrapper the platform_device into an mfd_device and use
that to do the platform_device and resource allocation in one
go to reduce the failiure.

Note, is there actually any reason to pass the sub devices any
information about the cell they are created from? The mfd core
already makes the appropriate resource adjustments and anything
else like clocks should be exported by the clock drivers?
