It is not just TMR exceptional. There are like half of the registers.
Thus: half of the registers need to be shifted and half of them
need to stay the same as in previous version of SAI.

I'm not seeing yet a neater approach. Lucas idea would somehow
work if regmap will allow some sort of translation function applied
over registers before being accessed.

Maybe Mark has some clues here?
