If this applies to any voltage change at all then rather than just power
on I need to finish off the stuff I've been sitting on for handling slew
times for voltage changes. If the regulator hasn't yet reached the
requested output when the consumer tries using it the consumer might get
broken.

If the ramp also gets applied when initially turning on the regulator
you'd still want to implement enable_time() for the same reason.

You'd return the amount of time taken to turn on the regulator and get
the output voltage stable in the current configuration. This will then
be used by the core to ensure that the consumer only tries to use the
regulator once it's fully enabled.

Are you sure about this? I'd expect to see force PWM used only for
_FAST, for _NORMAL pulse skipping is usually desired behaviour.

I'd just leave these unimplemented (there's no need to support all
modes) and make sure that this ties in with...

...this.
