From the TRM it appears that the max current output values are as follows

VINTANA2 - 250mA

Theoretically they may be able to support external load depending on your machine configuration but still I think providing constraints for them in
the chip driver could be a good idea since the "always-on" limitation is imposed by the chip and not the machine. Without these three supplies the TWL
does not function properly, if at all. Also worth noting is that the current implementation of RegulatorFW doesn't appear to be able to turn these
supplies off (comparing TWL register content with framework status).
