SubjectRe: [PATCH v4 01/12] misc: add driver for sequencer serial port

Why is this thing in drivers/misc?

drivers/mfd is IMHO the apropriate place for a driver like this, and
the subdrivers should be migrated to use mfd cells and platform
drivers for the subdevices.

All functions and abstractions you create here look suspiciously
lot like other MFD devices.

But please, beat me up if I'm wrong!
