I had a look at mtk-efuse.c and bcm-ocotp.c and both are doing similar
thus I assumed that the nvmem core takes care of handling this

that would be very nasty indeed

in the driver or in core? if possible these checks should be part of
the core nvmem code to prevent code duplication across various drivers
(and to prevent bugs if a specific driver forgets these checks)

dumping the whole efuse via sysfs showed the same results as (the
vendor command in Amlogic's) u-boot.

your questions are reasonable
this is my first nvmem driver, so there may be mistakes in the code -
maybe Srinivas could also comment on your feedback
also thank you for taking the time to review this!
