Ugh. We also have some entertainment because this device contains a touchscreen so I imagine you want readback but devices using odd register sizes don't do readback right now. What I think we want to do here is use pad_bits then internally to the API notice that reg_bits + pad_bits is a byte and therefore set up for 8 bit registers and set a new value reg_shift in the map which shifts the register address left, either teaching the register format functions about it or just making a new one. This should work better from a framework point of view.
