I thought about just checking if devm_get_regulator returned -ENODEV and
happily continue if that was the case, assuming no regulator was declared.

But anyway with the power sequences specification this problem becomes
null, since regulators will have to be explicitly declared anyway. I
might be flamed for putting a parser and interpreter into a backlight
driver, but I'll take my chances. :)
