The Qualcomm RPM regulator driver (see Kconfig symbol
REGULATOR_QCOM_RPM) was added in v3.18. It depends on the above symbol,
so it has not yet gotten build coverage. Even manual hacks like
    make -C ../.. M=$PWD CONFIG_REGULATOR_QCOM_RPM=m qcom_rpm-regulator.ko

won't work for that driver, because it includes linux/mfd/qcom_rpm.h,
which is not part of the tree.

It seems there's no generally agreed upon guideline for situations like
this. So I guess it's up to Mark to decide how long the tree should
include an unbuildable driver.
