This is temporary array, I did this on intention, to make it easy to
kfree cells which are found invalid at runtime.

We can do that, but I wanted to make the sysfs and dev entries more
readable than just nvmem0, nvmem1...

Thanks for spotting, you are correct, I need to add read_only flag to
nvmem_config too.

The attributes are actually coming from the class object, so we have no
choice to update the attributes before the device is registered.

May it would be more safe to have default as read-only and modify it to
read/write based on read-only flag?

The consumer api is get/put style, so consumers who already have
references to the provider, removing provider forcefully might lead to
dangling pointer. Having said that I can give a try and see how it looks.

yep, will do that.

Do you remember any conversation on the list about this? I could not
find it on web.

on the other hand, nvmem is not really a bus, making it a bus type
sounds incorrect to me.
