Subject: Re: [alsa-devel] [PATCH] mfd: wm8994: use PLATFORM_DEVID_AUTO for
 regulator devs creation to avoid conflicts

Hi Mark,
Thanks for your reply.

Sure, Understand. I missed that part.

I will just fix id base to 0 from -1.
If not, duplicate filename error was reported like this.
- sysfs: cannot create duplicate filename '/devices/.../wm8994-ldo'

Best Regards,
Inha Song.
