The regcache is used for suspend, but the suspend implementation in its
current form is not in not working. Hence I felt it is not worth fixing
part of something which is broken as a whole anyway.

So far I was under the impression the "only" issue using REGCACHE_RBTREE
is that it triggers a warning when enabling lockdep.

@Alexander, is using REGCACHE_RBTREE an actual problem for the issue
