Actually this fields in register controls some multiplexers, which we want to use as IO port,
see the example:  

                /|
               / |
              |  |------ some internal line 
IO PIN -------|  |------ logic 0
              |  |------ logic 1
              |  |------ not used
               \ |
               |\|
               |
               CREG field

Well, I going to use this driver on 3 already upstreamed platforms and one upcoming.
They all have such CREG 'GPIOs' differently mapped with different IO lines number,
different enable/disable value, etc...

So I really want to create some generic and configurable driver to handle both existing
and upcoming platforms.
