You are just moving the driver from hwmon to mfd. It is still a hwmon driver
and registers itself as hwmon driver. That does not make sense. If you want it
as mfd driver, it should not register itself as hwmon driver. It might have sub-devices
which are thermal and/or hwmon devices in the respective trees, or it might just be
a thermal driver (which then registers itself as hwmon device automatically).
