Existing nvmem framework export full register space

Add framework to export nvmem cell as well, So
userspace can use it directly.

Thankyou for the patch.
Why do you need such provision when the userspace can just get the cell values using correct offset and size.
This will also bring over head of managing entries dynamically + confusing userspace abi.
Unless you have a valid reason or usecase I don't see the need for this.
