OK I'll collect all of them and stash them into it for v10

Yes.

True, was blinded by similar comments in that Kconfig, such as
this:
# input before char - char/joystick depends on it. As does USB.

Anyway I took out the comment.

Dropped last week. Leftover from when I registered this
bus...

OK. Renamed a few functions accordingly.
Also added a fixup to the SirfPrimaII driver to use
the new names.

OK.

Yep noted by another reviewe also today...

Agreed, we return NULL on error instead.
Design pattern comes from clocks and regulators, it's not
that useful in this case, maybe not in the other cases either.

Fixed usage in U300 and Sirf controller as well.

Thanks a lot Grant!
