Subject: [PATCH v3 1/3] nvmem: core: allow to register cells during nvmem registration

Add NVMEM_PRE_ADD notification step which is called before any cells
binding - from lookup table or config, this allows to register cells
in some specific layout (tlv) which should be parsed first and then
registered. So there might be a cell parser driver which can register
lookup table during this notification step.

Signed-off-by: Vadym Kochan <>
    1) Update core.c changes by extending notification mechanism
       by adding new NVMEM_PRE_ADD event id which is called before lookup
       table cells binding, this allows for notification handler to
       register cells which require nvmem parsing.
