The other option might be to blindly configure 6040 to max speed ->
but then you do have an issue with that single register write
operation to configure the speed?

TWL6040 is by default at 100KHz, bus_speed is configured (via dts or
otherwise) is 400KHz/3.4MHz, the register write for configuring 6040
to max speed will occur at 400KHz/3.4MHz, which implies 6040 register
write operation might not actually take place (as 6040 still expects
to talk 100KHz till the mentioned register write takes place).

Ideally, the behavior you need is as follows:
talk at 100KHz for the first register write(of configuring speed),
followed by 400KHz/3.4 MHz for the subsequent operations on the bus
(assuming 400KHz/3.4 is the least common denominator speed on the bus).

I am not sure if the i2c framework has ability to do that.
