I think you speak about:

    void (*esp_write8)(struct esp *esp, u8 val, unsigned long reg);
    u8 (*esp_read8)(struct esp *esp, unsigned long reg);

But still we need to translate the *generic* offset (reg) into the real
offset, which requires a lookup/table to get it. For me this seems not
really more efficient and less transparent as it bends the offsets.
