I don't know. The original driver written by Simon supported 2 devices:
max77686 and max77802. I split the max77802 bits and addressed all the issues
pointed out on early revisions so even when Simon is mentioned as the
MODULE_AUTHOR(), I didn't know if he would like his s-o-b to remain in the
patch since it was quite different than the original one from which was based.

Yes, ffs() - 1 can be used instead of this function indeed.

I see that you already included this patch to your -mm tree [0]. Does it mean
that I've to send a follow-up patch on top of this to remove this function or
should I send a new version of this patch?

Best regards,
