Sorry if this caused confusion. I'll be more cautious next time.

Agreed. I've assumed that old platform code done right thing when it
set buck6 voltage constraints [1].

However, I still find it little problematic that dt and non-dt versions
behave differently when given the same set of parameters (previously
apply_uV wasn't the default and required explicit flag).


Thomas, would you mind adding small note to pmic's bindings
documentation stating that Buck6 is basically on/off switch? (Thus, no
voltage should nor can be specified).
