When booting Harmony using device tree, there's a special case that
registers all the regulators using the remnants of the Harmony board
file. Hence, regulators work right now even without the DT
instantiating them.

The patch in this thread adds all the required regulators to the DT
file. However, it should also remove the special case so the
regulators don't get registered twice, once from the board file and
once from DT. However, doing that would prevent regulators getting
registered at all, since v3.6-rc* don't have all the required
(TPS6586x) regulator (driver) patches to get the regulators
instantiated from DT. Everything will only work in linux-next or
sometime during the 3.7 merge window. Hence, git bisect would be broken.

One solution to this is to bring the regulator tree into the Tegra
tree as a dependency, and then apply a patch which adds the regulators
to DT, and removes the special case from the board file. I'm asking
for your OK to do that.
