I have done the bulk of this set back in June, 2011 and thought that I
will do the move to regmap as increment, but you are right. I'm anyway
touching the relevant places, so why not do it properly?
I'll take the regmap into use for v2.

I have based these part on the twl-core's implementation. I should not
have done that, I know.. Let's see how it will look like with regmap.

Oh, good to know. Thanks
