Sounds fine to me, step one is to get consensus on how to deal with
coordinating the kernel directly accessing to the pmic-i2c-bus vs punit
accesses which also end up needing to use the same i2c-bus from the
punit side.

Once I've a patch-set everyone likes I will start talking to people
to coordinate the merging, I believe it is probably best for all this
to be merged through the drm-intel tree. But we'll see about that
when the patch-set is ready.
