I have been preparing driver for yet another ROHM PMIC (bd71828) - and
the patch has been taking a few spins as RFC now. I would like to send
first non RFC version of it - and I would like to write it on top of
this patch. Is it Ok if I include this patch in the series - or should
this stay as independent change? I would like to try avoid conflicting
patches.

Br,
Matti Vaittinen
