Oh, BTW...

I don't think this makes any sense. By using global variables for
per-device resources and states, your driver pretty much assumes that
at most one supported device is present on every given system (which is
indeed always the case AFAIK.) So you should set id to 0 here...

... and to -1 here, so that the platform devices created don't receive a
number at all. Many mfd drivers do exactly this.
