Have you actually analyzed the code paths that are really taken here?
Static tools really don't cope very well with the pluggable locking in
regmap. If there are problems I'd suggest reporting them to the authors
of the drivers using them, it's not really anything to do with regmap if
they've messed up their locking.

That's quite old now... not that this has been rapidly developed
recently but still.
