Voltage/Current Regulators

Optional properties:
- regulator-name: A string used as a descriptive name for regulator outputs
- regulator-min-microvolt: smallest voltage consumers may set
- regulator-max-microvolt: largest voltage consumers may set
- regulator-microvolt-offset: Offset applied to voltages to compensate for voltage drops
- regulator-min-microamp: smallest current consumers may set
- regulator-max-microamp: largest current consumers may set
- regulator-always-on: boolean, regulator should never be disabled
- regulator-boot-on: bootloader/firmware enabled regulator
- regulator-allow-bypass: allow the regulator to go into bypass mode
- <name>-supply: phandle to the parent supply/regulator node
- regulator-ramp-delay: ramp delay for regulator(in uV/uS)
  For hardware which supports disabling ramp rate, it should be explicitly
  intialised to zero (regulator-ramp-delay = <0>) for disabling ramp delay.
- regulator-enable-ramp-delay: The time taken, in microseconds, for the supply
  rail to reach the target voltage, plus/minus whatever tolerance the board
  design requires. This property describes the total system ramp time
  required due to the combination of internal ramping of the regulator itself,
  and board design issues such as trace capacitance and load on the supply.
- regulator-state-mem sub-root node for Suspend-to-RAM mode
  : suspend to memory, the device goes to sleep, but all data stored in memory,
  only some external interrupt can wake the device.
- regulator-state-disk sub-root node for Suspend-to-DISK mode
  : suspend to disk, this state operates similarly to Suspend-to-RAM,
  but includes a final step of writing memory contents to disk.
- regulator-state-[mem/disk] node has following common properties:
	- regulator-on-in-suspend: regulator should be on in suspend state.
	- regulator-off-in-suspend: regulator should be off in suspend state.
	- regulator-suspend-microvolt: regulator should be set to this voltage
	  in suspend.
	- regulator-mode: operating mode in the given suspend state.
	  The set of possible operating modes depends on the capabilities of
	  every hardware so the valid modes are documented on each regulator
	  device tree binding document.
- regulator-initial-mode: initial operating mode. The set of possible operating
  modes depends on the capabilities of every hardware so each device binding
  documentation explains which values the regulator supports.

Deprecated properties:
- regulator-compatible: If a regulator chip contains multiple
  regulators, and if the chip's binding contains a child node that
  describes each regulator, then this property indicates which regulator
  this child node is intended to configure. If this property is missing,
  the node's name will be used instead.

Example:

	xyzreg: regulator@0 {
		regulator-min-microvolt = <1000000>;
		regulator-max-microvolt = <2500000>;
		regulator-always-on;
		vin-supply = <&vin>;

		regulator-state-mem {
			regulator-on-in-suspend;
		};
	};

Regulator Consumers:
Consumer nodes can reference one or more of its supplies/
regulators using the below bindings.

- <name>-supply: phandle to the regulator node

These are the same bindings that a regulator in the above
example used to reference its own supply, in which case
its just seen as a special case of a regulator being a
consumer itself.

Example of a consumer device node (mmc) referencing two
regulators (twl_reg1 and twl_reg2),

	twl_reg1: regulator@0 {
		...
		...
		...
	};

	twl_reg2: regulator@1 {
		...
		...
		...
	};

	mmc: mmc@0x0 {
		...
		...
		vmmc-supply = <&twl_reg1>;
		vmmcaux-supply = <&twl_reg2>;
	};
