Because we may not know if the bus supports raw IO and I would prefer
if it is not necessary to know in the driver that just uses the regmap
API if the underlying bus supports it.

Sorry this patch is wrong, instead it should set can_multi_write
properly depending on the availability of map->bus->write(). The code
would already handle multi writes then.
