I have pushed some nvmem core patches which are just compile tested to 
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/srini/nvmem.git/log/?h=topic/post-processing

This should provide the callback hook I was talking about.

Can you take a look at them and let me know if it works for you.

I have also added some test changes to imx provider driver as well, 
which you might have to take a closer look to get it working.

You need to look at adding/changing two things:

1. setting reverse_mac_address flag in imx driver.
	Does IMX always has mac-address reversed? if yes then we do not need 
any new bindings for imx nvmem provider, if no we might need to add some 
kind of flag to indicate this.

2. In imx devicetree for mac-address nvmem cell make sure you add

cell-type = <NVMEM_CELL_TYPE_MAC_ADDRESS>;

Yes, this is the direction, however we need a proper callback to do 
this. And offset information is still comes from Device tree.


Have a look at the patches pushed into topic/post-processing branch.
