Using a struct for registers is quite common:
scott at snotra:~/fsl/git/linux/upstream$ git grep struct|grep __iomem|wc -l

It provides type-safety, and makes accessing the registers more natural.

Given the if/else if/else if/... nature of how reg is initialized, this
seems like a useful and harmless way of making behavior predictable if
there is a bug.
