I understand why you're doing it but that feature is intended for the
use of cards when they're integrating components, not for devices
trying to register multiple components on the same device.  This means
that a card that tries to use the feature will conflict with what the
driver is doing, but like I say there's no obvious use case for a card
doing that.

That'd be better.
