We should teach the of platform layer to translate reg properties up
until the point that they can't be translated anymore. If they can't be
translated all the way back to cpu addresses we can make the resource
have IORESOURCE_REG instead of IORESOURCE_MEM and then said pmic
platform drivers can use platform_get_resource() with IORESOURCE_REG
instead of IORESOURCE_MEM to get the addresses.
