nvmem-consumer.h should be accessible from any driver, no?

And unfortunately nvmem-provider should be accessible too.
There are already eeprom drivers in the eeprom/misc directory that
cannot be moved yet to drivers/nvmem (like at24).

They need the provider definitions while they provide both the old
style interface, and the new NVMEM based one.

When we move them to the drivers/nvmem directory, then yes the
provider header file should move there.
