The above does not look good.  As I have said several times now drivers
implementing their own regmap operations should use the reg_read() and
reg_write() operations in regmap_config when allocating their regmap
unless they're doing something unusual.  There are a few cases where it
makes sense but nothing I've seen here makes it look like this is one of
them.  Most of the current users don't fit.

Please, just implement a normal driver using a normal regmap_config as
I've repeatedly said you should if you don't want to provide something
