It feels like it'd be more elegant to have the core select the irqless
function automatically if called after interrupts have been disabled -
otherwise we end up with the need to special case through other layers
of the stack like regmap as well which seems like it'd be error prone.
OTOH it does mean we might not notice things happening later than they
should so it's not 100% clear...
