AFAIK for the multi-platform defconfig we should try to build as a
module as many config options as possible to keep the kernel binary
size to a minimum.

In the case of the MAX77686, the mfd, regulator and clock drivers use
subsys_initcall() instead of module_init() but I wonder which of these
really need to be initialized at subsys init call time and which one
can just be built as a module. The only MAX77686 driver that uses
module_platform_driver() so it's initialized at device initcall time
is the rtc-max77686 driver which ironically is the only MAX77686
driver that doesn't define a MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE() so the module won't
be autoloaded.

Best regards,
