Is mach-u300 for all machines with a given processor or is it for a
specific system?

Does the CODEC really take a single supply called vaudio or are there
several inputs to the CODEC? Since it's integrated into the chip it's
not unreasonable for there to be only one supply (the digital is likely
to be powered internally and one analogue supply is plausible) but it's
common for there to be multiple supplies.

I'd strongly expect that the minimum voltage for the core is higher than
the one you're setting here - normally you'd set the lowest voltage it
can operate at.

Hrm, I didn't pick this up when reading the regulator driver but does
this mean that you're registering two different regulators for the same
buck convertor? The regulator API already provides separate
configuration for suspend mode. This is currently mostly only used to
set up regulators that have explicit suspend support but (as with and
probably as part of the sequencing) the core will at some point end up
providing soft support for this for use when the hardware doesn't
support this explicitly for some reason.

Probably we should have the core use the vanilla setup functions if
there's no support in the driver; we probably also need a way to force
the core to do the configuration via the runtime modes even if the
regulator has explicit suspend support in case the board has opted not
to use that.

This all looks like it can be supported with the existing constraints
code; look at boot_on and always_on. Normally the only thing that should
need deviceless supplies like you have here is cpufreq (due to the fact
that there's no struct device available for cpufreq to use).

Is there some problem with the existing support that you're trying to
work around here?
