Yeah, if "reading" from the PMIC can't be achieved with the current
mainline kernel, it does not make sense to add code for "reading" just
for the hack inside atomisp. Rather, in this case, adding the regulator
driver is a straightforward way.

We can already write with intel_soc_pmic_exec_mipi_pmic_seq_element(),
so what I wondered is, is there equivalent for "read"?

But yes, we should eventually use regulator driver anyway.
