In general regmap really can't be used in atomic contexts - we do have
options to configure a regmap so it can be used there but they're not
the default. It'd be better if the comment mentioned this and warned
against use with normal regmaps so people are less likely to try to use
this in an atomic context when the regmap doesn't support that.
