I'm keen to avoid getting lots of people sitting on unmerged patches,
it's a risk source due to interaction issues.

Yes, that's what I'd expect and roughly what I was suggesting doing
anyway inside the existing implementation (ie, not the new function
but making the edit inside the existing functions).

I'm not sure I like the _component_ naming since it's getting a bit
verbose, but on the other hand it probably should only be the core 
using this stuff (the drivers ought to be able to find their own
regmaps, or at least doing the same lookup) so probably it doesn't
matter terribly much.
