But how is this related your patch? What your patch does is change
things so that instead of trying to look up the supply in the context of
whatever device was passed in by the driver we try to look it up in the
context of the class device we create. I can't think of any situation
where I'd expect that to make matters any better - the class device
should certainly never appear in the device tree and isn't going to have
a stable name for non-DT systems either.

I'm just not seeing any problem in the core here. It sounds to me like
the problem might be either with the regulator driver doing something
odd with the struct device it specifies when registering the regulator
(though I'm guessing that it's the tps65910 which looks to be doing
something sensible currently) or the device tree for the board being
odd. Looking at the changes you posted to tps65910 I suspect the issue
is that you've changed the driver to pass in the platform device for the
regulators as their device rather than the I2C device but it's the I2C
device which appears in the device tree bindings.

If there is a change needed in the core you need to explain what you
believe that change will do.
