Because this is device data. Info is too loose of a definition.

I will take this up with Jonathan separately if necessary.

For your FYI (and Jonathan if he's Cc'ed), it's very common for a
child of an MFD to acquire resources from their parent. That is the
point of a lot of MFDs, to obtain and register shared resources and
pass them onto their offspring. There are 10's of examples of this.

Things like Regmaps aren't platform data, they are device/driver data,
which is usually passed though platform_set_drvdata().

Sorry?
