This patch makes reg_defaults const in the reg_config struct not in the
regmap struct.

Since we duplicate the reg_config reg_defaults into the regmap reg_defaults
the index cache works on a runtime allocated array. (Though I wouldn't
object to see it gone. For the average uscase it uses more memory and is
slower than the rbnode cache).
