Actually we have cros_ec_dev which registers the cros_ec class, and sysfs/vbc
and lightbar using this cros_ec class. I had problems unloading the different
modules. For example, when I removed cros_ec_dev modules before
cros_ec_sysfs/cros_ec_vbc/cros_ec_lightbar I got a hang.

To solve the hang I did the easy solution that is make these drivers depend on
cros_ec_dev so you're not able to unload cros_ec_dev if first you don't unload
the sysfs/vbc/lightbar.

Thinking again about it, I don't really understand now why failed in the first
place, cros_ec_dev is the parent, so, on remove should call mfd_remove_devices
for the subdevices.

So, let me check again this and I'll back to you.

Thanks,
Enric
