How that supposed to work when BATTERY_WM97XX is a module?
#ifdef CONFIG_BATTERY_WM97XX will evaluate to false, and you'll have
dummy wm97xx_bat_set_pdata() that returns -ENODEV...

The whole wm97xx stuff is broken wrt device-driver model... Yeah,
I know why -- we don't have the ADC API/Subsystem. It would be great
if somebody could find time to forward-port the subsystem from the
handhelds.org tree...

I don't know what happened to the industrialio subsystem though
(http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/7/23/163), but it looked needlessly
complicated, and probably Jonathan gave up on it... :-/
