Subject: [PATCH 1/2] rdc321x-gpio: fix null pointer dereference while accessing platform_data

rdc321x-gpio currently fetches its driver specific data by using the platform_
device->platform_data pointer, this is wrong because the mfd device which
registers our platform_device has been added using mfd_add_device() which sets
the platform_device->driver_data pointer instead.

Signed-off-by: Florian Fainelli <>
This patch should be applied for the next 2.6.36 stable release.
