I don't really understand what you mean by "keep the i2c interface
consistent" here? The purpose of this abstraction is to abstract away
the control interface used to communicate with the chip since it
supports both I2C and SPI.

That would expose the details of the I2C API and the wire format used to
access the device over I2C to the WM8350 core which would mean the SPI
control code would have to jump through hoops to emulate it. If the
device only had I2C control it would be better to just remove this
abstraction entirely and use the I2C API directly in the register access
