This is going in right direction but totally not correct way to do it.

1> this is not scalable as any consumer that will register for this even
will have no idea of which what kind of parsing that provider needs.
It can work in your case but not really useful.

2> this is a consumer API, not the provider api.

How about adding a "parse_cells" callback in struct nvmem_config along
with encoding type.
