regmap: Support non-incrementing registers
Some devices have individual registers that don't autoincrement the
register address during bulk reads but instead repeatedly read the same
value, for example for monitoring GPIOs or ADCs. Add support for these.

regmap: Add regmap_noinc_read API
The regmap API usually assumes that bulk read operations will read a
range of registers but some I2C/SPI devices have certain registers for
which a such a read operation will return data from an internal FIFO
instead. Add an explicit API to support bulk read without range semantics.
Some linux drivers use regmap_bulk_read or regmap_raw_read for such
registers, for example mpu6050 or bmi150 from IIO. This only happens to
work because when caching is disabled a single regmap read op will map
to a single bus read op (as desired). This breaks if caching is enabled and
reg+1 happens to be a cacheable register.
Without regmap support refactoring a driver to enable regmap caching
requires separate I2C and SPI paths. This is exactly what regmap is
supposed to help avoid.
