So you're instantiating the device with .id set to -1 (as your code
below shows), meaning there's only one leds-regulator in the system and
there's no need to number them. If you had more than one of them then
you'd number them and then have something like:

{ .dev_name = "leds-regulator.0", supply = "vled" },
{ .dev_name = "leds-regulator.1", supply = "vled" },
when setting up the supplies.

There is no need to use the .dev field, that is kept to avoid build
breakage transitioning to dev_name.
