I don't know much about regmap, but your description sounds like you
should be using it here, to simplify the differences between i2c and
spi in your driver instead of implementing your own abstraction
layer.

IMHO this would be better expressed if you make CONFIG_BMP085 a hidden
option that is selected when either BMP085_I2C or BMP085_SPI are enabled.
Otherwise you make it possible to build just the base driver but neither
of the front-ends, which is a bit pointless.

When you add internal symbols inside of your driver, best always use
EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL. There is little practical difference here, but it
helps to get used to just always pick that as a default.
