    Unlike MFDs, this device doesn't have cells with differing
    functionality. Instead it has functionally identical ports that can
    operate in a variety of modes. That said, does this still fit in with
    other MFD drivers? If so, I don't see a problem with moving it there.

    Thanks
    Cyril.
