You can, there's a couple of different ways depending on how
exactly things are done.

There's a few extra bits even if you're not using the marshalling
code to get things onto the bus - the main ones are the register
cache support (which people often use for simpler suspend/resume
support) and the debug and trace facilities (things like
tracepoints and debugfs for dumping the register map).  There's
no real connection to MFDs, I'd say the majority of users are not
MFDs.
