Alright. I'd like the ioremap() approach. ioremap() will "do the right
thing" and reuse mappings if they're already there and overlap in the
page. So it's OK that the syscon/simple-mfd exists and makes a device,
etc. etc., but we don't need to care about it. We can just ioremap() the
area and not worry that the regmap users may have a mapping to the same
place. This is a dedicated carveout inside IMEM so we're safe from other
meddling users.
