We've already asked TI for more detailed information, but apparently the
data sheet already says all there is to know. I should have worded the
commit message differently. Something like

There is no fixed mapping from register values to values in the range
35-70 ohms; it varies from chip to chip, and even that target range is
approximate.

So AFAICS the only meaningful thing to store in an nvmem cell is an
appropriate (per-board) raw value of that field.

I would think this would be very similar to how various sensors have
nvmem cells defining calibration data.
