This isn't exclusive to that, I think Laxman planned to send a patch
doing that on top of this one which would be what most users would end
up using.

See the previous discussion on this in the past day or so - bulk_write()
is more complicated to implement by itself since it's going to end up
boling down to a raw_write() internally anyway (as does reg_write()) and
it seems nicer to just do the right thing if people ask for it.

We can always refactor later to improve performance if needed but this
is a simple starting point.
