Are you referring to my patch or to the original $SUBJECT patch? It's
not terribly clear.

My patch doesn't add any regulators, it just fixes a bug when this init
function is called more than once.

The addition of the regulators was done in $SUBJECT patch, not my fix.

In either case $SUBJECT patch is already in Tony's fixes queue, so if it
is going be merged, then my fix above is needed also to not break
Overo and any other platform that has more than one smsc911x instance.
