The result of merging your topic/mmio and for-next branches is the same
as my local copy of patch 4 I sent, modulo that my local copy still has
regmap_open_file(), but that's not related.

So yes, I think the patches applied fine.

I assume the solution here is to:

* Always use __raw_readl/__raw_writel in regmap-mmio.c so that there's
never any endianness conversion, and don't use the endianness conversion
macros when reading/writing the work buffer.
* Implement alternative formatters that format in LE instead of BE
* Add a field to regmap_config indicating which endianness the data
should be in, and use this flag to select the LE/BE formatters.

Does that sound about right?

I wondered about that. I would have been quite happy to repost with that
change. Do you want an incremental patch?
