The way I've always read that was that you'd found a build failure in
a given bit of the tree while testing -next - you're clearly doing some
work to identify and understand where the failure came from (and simply
looking at the source file leads to the same result normally anyway) so
the fact that you've identified the subsystem doesn't automatically say
that this happened with a partially merged -next. If you looked less
like a human the subject by itself would be clearer :)

It's needed anyway, the driver will try to link against the MFD core so
even with both bits merged a build that didn't select the core would
fail.
