For a memory mapped device such as parallel NOR flash. It would be
perfectly fine to translate a nvmem cell 'reg' address to a CPU address.
If the partitions are not memory mapped, then it's a gray area. Whether
it makes sense to translate just to just the absolute offset of the
flash device, maybe or maybe not. At a minimum, 'ranges' just means
can translate to the parent address space. The Linux DT translate code
only supports the full translation to CPU addresses, but then it mainly
just supports creating resources.
