Why do you believe these notifiers are needed? I would expect that
anything that needs pre and post change notifications like this is
actually changing the configuration itself (since if it's that sensitive
to changes it seems likely that it wouldn't be enthused about having the
configuration changed while it's trying to do stuff).

This really sounds like something that's internal to the MMC controller
driver - based on your description I'm very surprised that boards even
get visibility of this. Surely the MMC controller driver should be
taking care of configuring PBIAS itself, assuming it's something
internal to the chip? Adding code to the regulator API so that the OMAP
MMC driver can be notified of the configuration it has applied to itself
(and any failures that ensue) feels baroque.
