This is an odd setup. I haven't seen one driver registering another
driver's Regmap call-backs before, related or otherwise. Normally the
Regmap is setup (initialised) in the parent driver and child drivers
just make use of it. Here it looks like you are registering 2
separate Regmaps, but using the same call-backs for both, which seems
wrong to me.
