    In non-DT, the input supply is passed with the regulator_init_data
    through the fixed voltage config and it is filled in board files.
    In one of discussion on input supply in my old patch, I understand that
    we should not provide the supply_regulator through the init_data as it
    is legacy and should provide with desc->supply_name.

    so matching with this I have this change and put th supply regulator in

    If we want to keep the same as DT and non-DT and not the extra care for
    this new policy then we can put the parsing code in
    of_get_fixed_voltage_config() and just fill the
    config->init_data->supply_regulator in this function.
    The property checking for vin-supply can be done in this function only
    and set the config->init_data->supply_regulator = "vin" accordingly.

    In this way there is no code for DT/Non-DT case.

    Let me know your opinion.
