 It is mandatory that the NVMEM provider has a regmap associated with its
 struct device. Failure to do would return error code from nvmem_register().
 
+Additionally it is possible to create nvmem cell lookup entries and register
+them with the nvmem framework from machine code as shown in the example below:
+
+static struct nvmem_cell_lookup foobar_lookup = {
+	.info = {
+		.name = "mac-address",
+		.offset = 0xd000,
+		.bytes = ERH_ALEN,
+	},
+	.nvmem_name = "foobar",
+};
+
+static void foobar_register(void)
+{
+	...
+	nvmem_add_lookup_table(&foobar_lookup, 1);
+	...
+}
+
+A lookup entry table can be later removed if needed:
+
+static void foobar_fini(void)
+{
+	...
+	nvmem_del_lookup_table(&foobar_lookup, 1);
+	...
+}
+
