Hi Andrew,

thanks for the quick review.

As mentioned in the cover letter, patch 2 depends on 1, so I think it
would make sense to push all through the MFD tree, including the GPIO
fix.

I guess patches 5 and 6 would be covered by the "new device IDs and
quirks" rule of the stable kernel rules. Does that mean they should
also go through the "fixes" rather than the "next" branch, making 4 and
7 the only ones for "next"?

Should I add "Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org" to all patches for the
"fixes" tree?

Kind regards,
Matthias
