    I have tested your patches (taken your mc13783 branch today, and merged
    it into my patches rebased on 2.6.32-rc6).

    Your mfd/mc13783 rewrite seems to work for me (but since there is no
    real usage for now, I don't use ADC yet and regulator don't do a lot).
    But it runs fine on my hardware.

    However, I get the hctosys: unable to read the hardware clock error
    message at boot (from drivers/rtc/hctosys.c:62). Is it normal ?

    Furthermore, the date and time are saved during system off, but the time
    is not updated: if I shut down the system during 10 minutes, my time
    will get a 10 minute delay. Is this a normal behavior with you current
    implementation or is there something we have wrong in our design/code
    (we have battery for the mc13783) ? I will have a further look at this
    later, didn't have time now.
