SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 5/7] mfd: Add RTL8231 core device
Hi Andy,

I forgot to address one of your questions, so here's a short follow up.

The chip has a static 5-bit field in register 0x01, called READY_CODE according
to the datasheet. If a device is present, and a read from register 0x01
succeeds, I still check that this field has the correct value. For the RTL8231,
it should return 0x37. If this isn't the case, I assume this isn't an RTL8231,
so the driver probe stops and returns an error value.
