The TWL6025 was never released beyond sample form and was replaced by
the PhoenixLite range of chips - TWL6032. Change the references to
reference the TWL6032 class and name the registers to twl6032 in line with
an actual released chip name to avoid confusion.

Currently there is no users of TWL6025 in the code.

Given that the chip exists even if not widely distributed it seems as
well to keep the twl6025 references in there at least in the device ID
table - it won't do any harm to people using the twl6032 name and might
help someone who happens to pick up an old board for whatever reason.

I do not think any "old boards" exist, it really was a limited run!


Hello Mark, Graeme,

Taking in account that:
- there is no hardware to test twl6025, testing is not possible;
- there is no documentation for twl6025, and if there are any changes to twl6032 is not known;
- twl6032 is available, and in production, twl6025 is not even found on <>

So, what do you think, can this change be accepted?
