It does not prevent me from switching to regmap SPI API.
It will prevent me from using regmap_read to read directly from device.

This aspect is not clearly stated in the datasheet, but since the Enable register has the LO enabled by default, I considered this aspect as being mandatory.
I will try to find out more information from the hardware guys who developed the part.
