By default regmap does not use caching so there is no benefit out of
it. In the same time reading with regmap involves its layer of
abstraction with locks, indirect calls etc... I agree that there is no
point for implementing specific "caching" but with the same code
readability/simplicity you can have it without multiple regmap
accesses one after another. Consider this:
unsigned int pkgid = exynos_chipid_read(EXYNOS_CHIPID_REG_PKG_ID);
asv->table = exynos5422_asv_get_table(pkgid);
asv->is_bin2 = exynos5422_asv_check_bin2(pkgid);
(and probably renaming the helpers)
The code is equivalent. The same readability.

Best regards,
