SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/5] nvmem: mtk-efuse: use stack for nvmem_config instead of malloc'ing it
From
Date
Hi, Masahiro

For maintainability, I felt it's better if we use the same way to
register nvmem as that most drivers does under nvmem usually using
static structure. Otherwise, they should also be changed to use the
one-time data in stack to avoid extra bytes to keep them.
