Well, it is a "simple MFD", so I don't see why we can't use the
"simple-mfd" compatible. Why would we not want to use it?

Besides, if the nemc driver is responsible for populating the efuse
device, that means the nemc driver must be enabled for the efuse to
work, which is nonsense, the two IP blocks being unrelated.
