Thanks for clarification, I will go as like in V2 sharing mfd struct to
the childs.

I misunderstood your previous question that you are asking to remove
this mp2629.h file

"No user here. (Hint: Use forward declaration of struct device instead)"
- review comments on V1 from Andy Shevchenko.
So remove the includes
