Actually, I fixed it. The problem was caused by the mfd and regulator drivers
having the same name, i.e. max8925.ko. I renamed the regulator driver to
max8925-regulator.ko, which also makes it more consistent with the rest of the
regulator drivers.

Stephen, the fix is already pushed, you can resume pulling the latest mfd
bits. Thanks for letting us know about the failure.

Cheers,
Samuel.
