It looks like this should be using the pad_bits parameter, though
currently we only actually support pad bytes and integer sized register
values. Ugh. We also have some entertainment because this device
contains a touchscreen so I imagine you want readback but devices using
odd register sizes don't do readback right now.

What I think we want to do here is use pad_bits then internally to the
API notice that reg_bits + pad_bits is a byte and therefore set up for 8
bit registers and set a new value reg_shift in the map which shifts the
register address left, either teaching the register format functions
about it or just making a new one. This should work better from a
framework point of view.
