Yes I know that but my point is that this will also happen in mainline if
the MFD device is unbind. Is just that it's harder to do so since at least
in the Chromebooks the regulators are used for the panel and backlight so
you will need a serial console.

The problem with patch series touching different subsystems is that the
maintainers have to agree on how to handle the possible conflicts so it
is easier for them if you split the patches and post them separately if
the are really no dependencies.

My view is that this fixes a regmap-irq core bug that is present in all
the drivers using regmap-irq that remove the IRQ chip after mapping IRQs
so it's really not related to your RTC series.

But of course I'm not a subsystem maintainer so is up to Alexandre and
Mark to decide that. I was just giving my opinion.
