Subject: [RFC v4 net-next 09/17] net: dsa: felix: add support for MFD configurations

The architecture around the VSC7512 differs from existing felix drivers. In
order to add support for all the chip's features (pinctrl, MDIO, gpio) the
device had to be laid out as a multi-function device (MFD).

One difference between an MFD and a standard platform device is that the
regmaps are allocated to the parent device before the child devices are
probed. As such, there is no need for felix to initialize new regmaps in
these configurations, they can simply be requested from the parent device.

Add support for MFD configurations by performing this request from the
parent device.
