Sadly, there's no explanation in the commit message. I guess it was
a different time back then. Anyway, I can tell from my previous post,
that the issue can fixed in the same way (i.e. adding CONFIG_REGMAP=y
to the sata/config-default and a revert of the kmod-regmap patch).

Right, it's becoming very tricky in OpenWrt patch context. In vanilla linux
it's pretty straight forward, since it does not allow regmap to be a module.
And I don't think upstream will be changing its stance on a regmap module.
