The reason it's formatted like that is that the AUXADC input names match
the names of the supplies that are being monitored so the second parameter
is also used to provide a label to userspace.

Hrm, yeah. I need to figure out where I cut'n'pasted this from since I
suspect the error came along with that.

I'm happy to go with whatever is easiest for the people actually doing
the merging. wm8350 is fairly static at the minute - it's much more
likely that there would be merge issues from the build infrastructure.
It might be a little easier to merge via mfd.

I'll fix the rest of your comments, thanks.
