I didn't get this even after reading it 5 times.  You wrote in the
subject that drivers now have access to mfd_cell.  I don't see where
e.g. drivers/leds/leds-mc13783.c uses that?!  Does this depend on some
mfd-changes I don't see and this is just a first step?

After reading the changes I think I understood:

 - You made things that were passed as platform_data before available
   via driver_data.
 - Because platform_data is copied and driver_data is not at register
   time, the data being platform_data cannot be __initdata or stack
   local anymore, so this needs fixing.

In sum this results in .data becoming bigger (which is bad).

And I think this patch has a conceptual problem, too.  In my opionion
platform_data is the point to hand over platform specific data to a
driver.  driver_data is something that is private to the driver and has
to be considered opaque for the platform.  The driver was sort of OK
before ...

The prefix mx27 is misleading. If you want to take the machine name
into account use mx27_3ds, otherwise just use mc13783_regulator_pdata or
similar. (And note that "regs" isn't that good IMHO, too, as it might
stand for registers, too. And even mx27_3ds_regulators would be too
general. This applies to the changes below, too.)

a very minor nitpick is you moved the comment for mx27_3ds, but not for
e.g. mx31_3ds.

So for n leds you introduced n-1 useless ints.

So all in all, I don't like that change, maybe just because I don't
understand your motivation.
