I was thinking of a regmap-pardata.c like drivers/base/regmap/regmap-i2c.c.
It's not much code an we would avoid having generic register access
functions in DRM. It's not about speed or caching, but just to try and
put code where it logically belongs.

Here is one experiment where I have created a regmap on a 8080 bus:
https://github.com/notro/tinydrm/blob/master/tinydrm-regmap.c
Used here: https://github.com/notro/tinydrm/blob/master/fb_ili9325.c

I don't advocate this particular approach, I mention it just as an
example of using regmap in a tinydrm driver.
