Please avoid using _relaxed accessors by default, and use the regular
ones instead. There are a number of things that can go wrong with
the relaxed version, so ideally each caller should have a comment
explaining why this instance is safe without the barriers and why it
matters to not have it.

If there are performance critical callers of mhi_read_reg/mhi_write_reg,
you could add mhi_read_reg_relaxed/mhi_write_reg_relaxed for those
and apply the same rules there.

Usually most mmio accesses are only needed for reconfiguration or
other slow paths.
