I am little bit confused about regmap usage here. On the one hand it
nicely fits to this specific driver, probably because it already uses
regmap_i2c.

On the other it will be unusable for almost all current DSI drivers and
probably for most new drivers. Why?

1. DSI protocol defines actually more than 30 types of transactions[1],
but this patchset implements only few of them (dsi generic write/read
family). Is it possible to implement multiple types of transactions in
regmap?

2. There is already some set of helpers which uses dsi bus, rewriting it
on regmap is possible or driver could use of regmap and direct access
together, the question is if it is really necessary.

3. DSI devices are no MFDs so regmap abstraction has no big value added
(correct me, if there are other significant benefits).
