Thanks for pointing it out.

Indeed, the initcall was needed in your set of patches here:
https://patchwork.kernel.org/project/linux-samsung-soc/list/?series=43565&state=*
but this work was not continued here. Maybe it will be later
resubmitted... maybe not... who knows? Therefore I would prefer proper
solution for current case (driver), unless patches for mach are being
brought back to life now.

I queued the chipid as a dependency for ASV but ASV requires the
regmap. What would be left after reverting the regmap part? Simple
unused printk driver? No need for such. If reverting, then let's drop
entire driver and rework it offline.

Best regards,
Krzysztof
