Subject[PATCH] regulator: recursive locking detected
Date
"possible recursive locking detected"-warnings are issued when a
regulator has specified supply regulator. Both when enabling and
disabling regulators uses recursive call chains for notify the supply
regulators. This is due to locking mutexes of the same lock class,
i.e. the locks reside in the regulator_dev struct.

Since this is valid behavior for the regulators, this patch changes the
mutex lock into nested, as suggested in lockdep-design.txt.
