Yes, old things but working on recent kernel.

It is done. The audio part is present in ASoC subsystem (path 5 in this
series). pinctrl function is implemented in this driver and, as I don't
want to share registers, I would prefer to keep this function inside this

Also, I sent a RFC related to HDLC and PHY. In this RFC, the pef2256 is
considered as a PHY and handled in the PHY subsystem.

I can do that in the next iteration if really needed.

These defines are related to registers. As I don't want to share these
registers, is it really necessary to use a header file for them ?

I can improve the API documentation present in include/mfd/pef2256.h.
Do you thing that is necessary ? Only a few devices will use this API.

I did.
The driver has (and needs to have) a compatible string.
Having this compatible string, sub-nodes are not automatically populated
in the device tree. In order to have them populated and probed, the pef2256
probe function ends calling devm_of_platform_populate().
