This is a mess. Please setup your mailer to quote correctly.

I'm asking what this is dictated by.

Are these ID/index values written into H/W?

I think it belongs in drivers/platform. Take a look at some of the
other Embedded Controller code that lives there.

Please provide more details.

I thought this driver was for the EC chip.

There's no need to do that if they are being allocated below.

devm_kzalloc() does that for you - that's what the 'z' means.

Shouldn't the watchdog be it's own sub-node?

Is that functionality not probably at all?

Surely it has it's own register set?

The only thing hotplug does is hard-code the platform ID.

It's more of a win if you can omit the mfd_remove_devices() call.

I really don't like the sub_dev_mask idea.

Are the ACPI tables available?

From DMI? What do you use it for? Debug prints or something else?
