I just verified the patch series on my embedded PowerPC MPC8344E board
and it worked fine. Unfortunately I can not test the ISA interface due
to lack of hardware. Just some nitpicking. In the final w83781d.c I
realized redundant labels:

  static int
  w83781d_detect_subclients(struct i2c_client *new_client)
  /* Undo inits in case of errors */
	  return err;
