Sorry, I will do this, but I am not sure if even this driver is
conceptually acceptable.

But this is not nvmem provider but just describes the cells for any
nvmem device, because ONIE uses special TLV structure on the nvmem
device. So from the nvmem device point it is a consumer but provides the cells
for the given device.
