It's limiting in as much as it's insisting on a required order for
initialisation which shouldn't be there. As said previously they're 2 separate
devices in one package, with no internal connection, so either could be
instantiated first. It should be open to the user to decide on this based on
their platform and needs.

With your approach, it is more work for no gain here, and holds us to a
logical representation which doesn't fit with the device in question (which is
not really an MFD, it's two devices, one of which is an MFD, the PMIC).
