Some of the RTC hardware has the capability of address wrapping which
means if you access a continuous address range across a certain
boundary(could be the boundary of a regmap region) the hardware
actually wrap the access to a lower address. But the address
violation check of regmap rejects such access. According to
Alexcandre, the address wrapping is essential to the functionality of
some RTC devices and can improve performance for some others. We are
wondering if it is reasonable to have regmap support this address
