So we using the mfd_cell to match child devices using _HID. At a glance, 
I don't actually see other drivers to use mfd_cell_acpi_match.pnpid .

Anyway we don't use static tables as we need to update the resources of 
the cell dynamically. However I do look at a driver like 
intel_quark_i2c_gpio.c, and this dynamically modifies the value of 
global mfd_cell array here:
https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/latest/source/drivers/mfd/intel_quark_i2c_gpio.c#L266

I know the cell array is only used at probe time, but this did not look 
to be good standard practice to me.

John
