Removing the 2 lines will simply allow any node to be a syscon. If
there's a specific driver for a node, then that makes sense to allow
that.

Which means a read-modify-write can corrupt the register value if both
users don't access thru regmap. Changes are probably infrequent enough
that you get lucky...

Yes, of course.

IMO, this should be done as part of merging this series. Otherwise, we
have duplicated code for the same thing.
