This is a shortcoming of the nvmem subsystem we discussed under
another patch in this series with Boris and Srinivas. I will try to
post a series addressing this next week. Basically there's a global
list of nvmem cells referenced only by name and unless you're using DT
you can only have a single cell with given name. I will address it by
introducing the standard dev_id/con_id resource association.
