That's because i2c-amd756-s4882.c was written before the i2c-mux
infrastructure was available. Ideally SMBus multiplexing support on the
Tyan S4882 would be converted to i2c-mux (i.e. i2c-amd756-s4882.c would
be deleted and the multiplexer would be instantiated in i2c-amd756.c
itself, based on DMI data.) This shouldn't be particularly difficult,
the real difficulty is to find someone with one of these boards to test
the changes.

That's not how it works, sorry. Submissions must be based on a recent
kernel in order to be accepted upstream. If you want SMBus multiplexing
support on your system, it will have to be based on i2c-mux, because
that's how things work now. Otherwise I will not accept your code.
