SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/2] clk: bd718x7: Initial support for ROHM bd71837/bd71847 PMIC clock
Hello All,

Just wanted to point out for the reviewers that this patch depends on
not yet accepted MFD/regulator patch. (struct/defines in
include/linux/mfd/rohm-bd718x7.h were changed)

Thus this error was expected. What is the generally best way to work
when there is changes to more than one subsystem? With this approach
the patch set here won't compile until MFD part gets applied. But if
I use old definitions/structs here, then clk tree gets broken when
MFD/regulator part changes defines. I see only bad and worse options =)
Anyways, I guess sending this patch with new defines (and applying it
only after MFD) is still better than applying this with old defines and
breaking it when MFD changes. (Assuming all of the patches get applied
at some point).

Br,
