Thanks for testing it.

This is minimal solution and some sub-devices of ab8500 MFD may still 
not work.

For example, ab8500-debugfs may not work (ste-dbx5x0.dtsi):
	ab8500-debugfs {
		compatible = "stericsson,ab8500-debug";

 and its DT definition may need to be updated to explicitly define IRQs,
smth like this:
	ab8500-debugfs {
		compatible = "stericsson,ab8500-debug";
		interrupts = <0 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH
			      111 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>;
		interrupt-names = "IRQ_FIRST", "IRQ_LAST";

I've reposted this patch already:
