3.18 will contain a patch that handles endianess within the regmap
framework. It does not need any parsing of DT properties within the
driver, so we can savely remove it here.
The required mainline patch is
	(regmap: add DT endianness binding support.)

This is the topic branch with the patches which replace the functionality of
this code.

Best regards,
