Firstly please put the driver name in the title when a patch only
effects one driver.

Secondly, please see final version of Gargi Sharma's patch for
the ade7754.

As with that one, the basic principle is fine, but I didn't
like the V2 version which did the local copy of spi_write as
you have here.

Introduced an unlocked version of the ade7759_spi_write_reg_16
function and call it both from ade7759_spi_write_reg_16 and
directly here.

Puts the _WRITE_REG magic all in one place.

Otherwise, looks good!
