The most effective solution would be to
have one file per register.

Writing register:
# echo value > /sys/path/to/file

Reading register:
# cat /sys/path/to/file

Also, since your FPGA is in development phase I assume that
the registers base address is changing (or am I wrong?). You can
solve this with an additional writable sysfs entry  which will
hold the current base address.
