Sure. Will do for v2.

Ok, so I considered that at first and had two concerns that made me just
do it in the omap3evm specific way and see what the feedback was.

1) If we do a generic implementation in gpmc-smsc911x.c, there needs to
be a way to override it. Another board may have a variable supply that
feeds this consumer.

2) Technically, this omap3evm specific implementation matches the hardware
in that the osk_3v3 rail is software controllable. Granted, I commented
that we simply don't hook up the gpio at this time since this real
hardware regulator has always been silently asserted on by the nature of
the reset state of the TWL GPIOs and the board level pull downs as well.

So that said, I don't need #2 to make omap3evm work and I don't think
anybody cares yet to actually turn that regulator off (as it will kill
other things that appear to not have regulator support anyway). It looks
like you talked me into respinning it as a generic implementation. Only
question is whether I should bother consider not-yet-existing boards that
may not want that generic regulator.
