Layout should not matter! which is the purpose of this callback.

The only purpose of this callback is to tell nvmem core that the
node(nvmem cell) belongs to that provider or not, if it is then we
successfully found the provider. Its up to the provider on which layout
it describes nvmem cells. Additionally the provider can add additional
sanity checks in this match function to ensure that cell is correctly

I agree on passing cell node instead of its parent. Regarding basic
validating if its nvmem cell or not, we can check compatible string in
nvmem core if we decide to use "nvmem-cell" compatible.

Also just in case if you missed this, nvmem would not iterate the
