What if I create a separate structure for the regmap context ?

struct anybus_regmap_context {
void __iomem *base;
};

Then just store the base pointer inside the struct, and pass the struct
as the regmap context:

ctx = devm_kzalloc(dev, sizeof(*ctx), GFP_KERNEL);
ctx->base = base;
devm_regmap_init(..., ctx);

static int write_reg_bus(void *context, unsigned int reg,
unsigned int val)
{
struct anybus_regmap_context *ctx = context;
<now access ctx->base>
}

Penalty is an additional dynamic pointer-size
allocation. Pro: it'll be formally correct ?
