Coding style nit: if one side of the if has braces both should.  Most of
this code could also use more blank lines.

So, this is a bit interesting.  It will update one register at a time
which means that we are likely to transiently set an invalid value
sometimes which might not make the hardware happy or may cause us to
write a valid value with undesirable consequences.  I'd expect to see
some handling of this, some combination of providing a safe value that
the hardware could be reset to prior to change and doing a bulk write to
all the registers simultaneously if we can (I know sometimes hardware
has special handling for atomic updates of multi-register values in a
single block transfer).
