I was trying to use regmap_read_poll_timeout() to poll for status change
of a register. This resulted in "BUG: scheduling while atomic". The
callback function, in which I was trying to use the macro, runs in
atomic context. Hence new atomic macro is added. I was checking ALSA
playback/capture and trigger() callback had to monitor some register status.

In general, the new macro can be used in atomic callbacks where regmap
interface is used and polling is required.
