There's one thing which I need to sort out before I enable the regmap
cache for the twl6040 MFD (and remove all other caching of vibra
controls in the MFD, and from the ASoC codec driver):
In the codec driver I have one 'shadow' register which does not exist on
the HW. I'm going to need to have access to that shadow register's bits
in the future transparently.
I was wondering if we could add support to regmap for such SW only
registers. This would only make sens if the cache is enabled. We could
have a callback let's say shadow_reg() in remap_config struct. If it is
a shadow reg we never reach out for the HW and operate only on the cache.
Is this something we can add to regmap?
