Subject: Re: [PATCH v3 01/30] mfd: Makefile: Remove build option for
 MFD:sun4i-gpadc

Hi Philipp,

First, thanks for doing that rework. It was needed, and it's very much
appreciated :)

As you can imagine though, I have a bunch of comments.

One of the things we should strive for is bisectability, which means
being able to have a working driver at every point in time while
introducing the features.

In this particular case, this isn't really a problem since you're
removing part of code that were never really enabled, but you should
at least document why in your commit log.

Thanks!
Maxime
