Ok. Will revise.

Do you want to remove the struct lpc_io_ops member from struct hisilpc_dev??
I think we can not do that.

These two functions are essential rd/wr operation for Hip06 LPC. They will be fallen into
when the upper layer drivers call their own IO in/out functions, such as serial_in/serial_out
for 8250 serial.

I can define lpc_iord/lpc_iowr directly in struct hisilpc_dev and cancel the definition of
struct lpc_io_ops. In my original idea, several LPC cycle types will be supported. Each cycle
type has its specific ops. Now, only one cycle type is needed, the struct lpc_io_ops is not
meaningful.

Yes. Will use builtin_platform_driver for the unnecessary remove callback.
