I think that would be the better solution. This can be done
independently, once we agree on a binding we just have to fix
of_nvmem_cell_get(). My suggestion would be to have the new binding
looking like this:

nvmem-device@10 {
	...
	nvmem-provider;
	nvmem-cells {
		compatible = "nvmem-cells";
		#address-cells = <1>;
		#size-cells = <1>;

		nvmem-cell@100 {
			label = "mac-address";
			reg = <0x100 0x200>;
		}

		...
	}
}

I would also suggest making the "nvmem-provider" property mandatory
to indicate that the device provides this capability. Up to now all
nvmem providers only support this API but I think there might be more
multi function devices in the future.
