I'm not sure this would be wise. If we ever need some other register
exported through the regmap, will have to change all the calling sites
everywhere in the kernel, which will be a pain and will break
bisectability.

Chen-Yu's (or was it yours?) initial solution with a custom writeable
hook only allowing a single register seemed like a better one.
