We had started working on restructuring of both PMIC and CODEC drivers.
But soon after starting, we realized that the kind of abstraction that
we were heading towards will not be logically correct and good from
maintainability point of view. Basically tying up two COMPLETELY
INDEPENDENT (they really don't share anything other than the name!)
drivers via a virtual MFD entity will not make much sense in our
opinion. Also as mentioned earlier, the codec design(chip) will be
produced as a standalone codec device soon, and we hope the driver can
be re-used directly without changes. Is this the reason why we see only
a handful examples of suggested implementation in kernel?
