SubjectRegulator enable/disable delay based on board design: How to handle?
Hi Mark,
We observed that some of the rail enable/disable settling time depends
on the board design specially based on external capacitor connected on
rails. This is observed mainly on VBUS regulator rail where difference
on the capacitance value which is connected on rail makes the on/off
time to vary.
Currently none of regulator driver support such board related delay.
My question is:

- Should we add board delay as part of platform data for regulator and
handle in regulator driver? Or,
- Push this delay parameter to respective client driver and let them to
handle. Not a good idea as it is mainly related to rail on/off. Or,
- Should we add one more parameter in regulator_init_data as rail_delay
and push this change to core driver of regulator i.e. if it is non-zero
then take this value from this field otherwise take from <xxx>-regulator
driver?


I can also work towards If there is any other good options and
acceptable to linux community.

Thanks,
Laxman
