Don't thinks like dev_printk() prefix the bus name? See
dev_driver_string()? So I agree that having the bus name is useful, but
confused why there are testing scripts and things on top of regmap

Put another way, why not introduce something similar to i2c-dev where
userspace can read/write registers for devices on the SPMI bus?
Otherwise I presume the test scripts inside Qualcomm are just reading
registers out of regmap?
