`regmap` provides couple of ways to validate the registers:
max_register, callback function and write table. All of these are
optional, so it gives you the freedom to customize it as needed.

In this situation probably you could:
1. Avoid using the wrapping feature of pcf85363 (you can just provide
separate calls for stop, reset and time confguration). In this way the
`max_register` validation method will work fine.
2. Replace `max_register` method validation with `callback function`
validation method, were you could make your own validation.
