It turns that the problem was not related to any bad usage of
platform data by MFD/SPMI drivers. There used to have a need to access
the SPMI privdata before we added support for regmap, but this is
long gone.

The problem is just that the Axel's patch was setting the platform
drvdata, but the internal logic was addressing a different memory
region (from the SPMI driver), because hi6421v600-regulator driver sets
the config.dev as:

config.dev = pdev->dev.parent;

The config.dev needs to point to the SPMI driver, in order to ensure that
regulator_register() will access the proper OF data from the SPMI
devicetree descriptors here:

init_data = regulator_of_get_init_data(dev, regulator_desc, config,
&rdev->dev.of_node);

With the Axel's fixup patch:

the regression was solved.

Thanks,
Mauro
