The approach here seems reasonable to me. We can be more flexible
if we ever need to.

We did have the slightly silly naming of addac in staging for a while.

Anyhow, I'd say a single driver (not mfd), in a new directory as appropriate.

I'm not sure I follow in enough detail what you mean to offer detailed opinions.
Are we talking pipeling type setups similar to the media framework does?

It would certainly be possible to have a notification system that multiple driver
can register to but I'm not sure I follow the usecase. Perhaps some in depth
examples would help me understand?

Thanks,
