SubjectRe: [PATCH 3/5] Add MFD driver for TPS6507x family of multi-function chips

This patch should also be updating the regulator driver to work in terms
of this new MFD driver - otherwise after applying it you'll have two
incompatible drivers for the same chip at once.

Extra change in the diff here (not unreasonable, but...).

The WM831x is a much better thing to be cloning here - it fits in much
more directly with the MFD framework, meaning that you don't need...

...stuff like this, you can just use the MFD core.

Does the hardware support SPI? The reason the Wolfson drivers are split
up like they are is that the hardware supports both I2C and SPI so room
is being left to add SPI support but if not then you may as well just
have a single probe() function which does all the init.

Perhaps worth saving adc_mutex until you add support for the ADC?
