A syscon compatible should not be the only way to get a regmap.
Removing lines 56/57 of drivers/mfd/syscon.c should be sufficient.

Why do you need a regmap in the first place? What else needs to access
this register directly? Don't you need a patch removing the clock code
from within the emmc driver? It's not even using regmap, so using
regmap here doesn't help.
