Not sure why this is being classified as an MFD.

This is clearly 'just' a memory device.

Despite including the MFD API, I don't see it being used at all.

Abstraction for the sake of abstraction is generally discouraged.

You can call devm_of_platform_populate() from anywhere.

Doesn't have to be an MFD.
