You need to have the ACK:ed by the MFD subsystem maintainer
so that Günther can merge it later, along with the HWMON patch.

Also combine them into a series, this one as 1/2 and the other
patch as 2/2.

And remember to send both to the relevant maintainers
(see MAINTAINERS file):

M:      Jean Delvare <khali at linux-fr.org>
M:      Guenter Roeck <linux at roeck-us.net>

M:      Samuel Ortiz <sameo at linux.intel.com>

Both patches should also go into the linux-kernel at vger.kernel.org mailing
list "LKML".
