Um, why regmap doesn't accept a zero lock-id, that because regmap will
reguest hwlock depending on the 'regmap_config->hwlock_id' is not
zero, if regmap regard a zero lock-id as valid which will affect other
'struct regmap_config' definition. So users should not assign the zero
lock-id to regmap.

Now of_hwspin_lock_get_id() can return 0 as valid, which depend on
what is the base id registered by hwspinlock driver. So you think we
should not regard 0 as valid from of_hwspin_lock_get_id(), I can try
to send another patch to fix.

But for this patch I still think we need regard the zero lock-id as
invalid and gave error messages to users.
