What about introducing a per-programmer delay function pointer instead?
Your programmer could buffer everything (delays, writes) until the first
read, then send them as a batch.

AFAICS this would solve almost all issues and be a good first step forward.
The only remaining issue would be fast read, but for that it's easy to
replace chip_readl (32bits) with chip_readn (n bytes).
