Sorry, yes. For the conflicting device Ids, both the PMIC and the CODEC used
the same I2C Id string, which meant if you tried to intiate both together on the
same bus, then the second would fail.

For the removal of platform_get_irq_byname(), the reason for this was that it
was conflicting with regmap_irq_get_virq() when the IRQ value returned from
platform_get_irq_byname() was being passed to regmap_irq_get_virq(). The result
for the code was that it would try to request a threaded IRQ using an invalid
IRQ number (have also described this further in patch 0004 mail thread,

What I could've done is use platform_get_irq_byname() and avoided using
regmap_irq_get_virq() as I would already have the correct VIRQ to pass to
request_threaded_irq(), but I figured that using regmap_irq_get_virq() made
more sense at the time, and was unable to use both.
