No, it's not. This is a a patch series doing a whole bunch of different
things, there's at least bug fixes to existing drivers, new features and
also this new driver in what I've glanced at so far. These things
shouldn't just be being thrown together into a single patch series, and
the patch series shouldn't then be described as just being what is in
the end a minor part of the collection.

Doing this makes things more manageable from the review side, avoids
pointless dependencies and avoids setting off alarm bells. My first
thought when seeing this was "how can a regulator driver be so complex
as to need 14 patches, there must be something seriously wrong here".

The whole thing about making sure that what you're doing makes sense
beyond just giving the correct test results also applies to sending the
patches - think if what's being said to the people reviewing the patches
is sensible.
