This is historical, they can all be converted to regulator_get_exclusive()
so the move to the core (while good) isn't required for this reason.

Can the MMC core actually tolerate the MMC power not getting killed when
expected? My understanding from previous discussion was that it wasn't
able to do so. If it is then conversion to using regulator_get_exclusive()
isn't desirable, of course.
