Usually this would be handled via regulator driver platform data as the
regulator will typically be designed with particular external components
in mind and (especially in the case of DCDC convertors) may need to be
configured differently depending on the choice of passive components.
Many regulators also have some software control for the ramp rate,
mainly intended to limit inrush currents on system startup, which can be
varied at runtime if desired.
