Ah, you're doing builds after each individual merge. It might help to
change the form you're using when reporting problems with partially
constructed -next - at the minute you say "Today's linux-next build
(x86_64 allmodconfig) failed like this:" which makes it look like you're
testing the result of the full -next merge.

No, it does really fix the problem. As I said the driver should build
depend on a Kconfig symbol which is introduced in the MFD tree. This
means that the driver will not be built at all until MFD has been merged
since the dependencies required to select the driver will not be
satisfied unless the commits it depends on are present in the tree.

I'll push a patch for this shortly.
