Thanks, I've applied this.  I'll extend it so that individual devices
can do this as well - I've not looked at your driver but it might be
that this is a better option than regmap_bus for your driver (but both
are supported so meh).  Dave, I've tagged the commit and there's a pull
request for this below:

The following changes since commit 6ff33f3902c3b1c5d0db6b1e2c70b6d76fba357f:

  regmap: Allow installing custom reg_update_bits function (2015-10-06 16:12:34 +0100)

regmap: Allow buses to provide a custom update_bits() operation

Some buses provide a native _update_bits() operation which for uncached
registers is faster than doing a read/modify/write cycle as it is a
single bus transaction.  Add support for implementing this to regmap.
