I looked at patch 2. It looked like an abuse of what constraints do,
and had zero explanation of why it was doing what it was doing. In any
case we need the regulator code and changelog to be clear about what the
interface is for and why it should be used, that's not happening here.

I can't really tell what you're saying here. If the driver needs to
know if it can set the a given voltage there's already an API for doing
that as I said. If you're trying to convey this minimum and maximum
voltage via the constraints that sounds like an abuse of the constraints.
