Gaurav Kohli - March 15, 2019, 1:59 p.m.
Current nvmem framework allows user space to read all register space
populated by nvmem binary file, In case we don't want to expose value
of registers to userspace and only want kernel space to read cell
value from nvmem_cell_read_u32.

To protect the same, Add no-read-write property to prevent read
from userspace.
