I was expecting a revert if you want to keep the branch fast forward
only.

This isn't very good for reviewing the API change, and of course I'd
also expect this change to be in the regmap tree so we can work on
regmap without collisions, I obviously can't just merge in net-next.
I was thinking about making some further changes on top of this and it
*is* fiddling about in the core.

Jon, please send me a patch against the regmap tree for review while we
work out how to sort out this mess.
