Ok, thanks for the clarification.
Instead of passing the device name, will it be ok to pass the mfd_id.
The benefit will be that I can use the ID directly as an array
index for the mfd_cell entries.
Just to verify my understanding, all that's needs to be done is add
a sysfs entry at
Writing to this entry would create the respective device.
Rewriting would unload the old (mfd_remove_device)
and reload the new device.
Reading may return the various devices and their name
