    i think Mark's point is that we have code in dummy.c already to
    provide a dummy regulator. so your needs sounds like it could be
    satisfied with some Kconfig/ifdef massaging and the existing
    drivers/regulator/dummy.c rather than introducing a completely
    parallel file that is always enabled ?
