This seems basically fine, though I do have a few comments below.

Bulk versions of the API would also make sense - it's likely that more
than one supply will need to be mapped - and please also add managed
versions so people don't have to write cleanup code.

This seems like someting that should be in the MFD core, or at least
that there should be helpers in the core. Something like a set of
mappings in the mfd_cell so it's all data to the drivers.

Please use a more meaningful name for dev. It might also be worth
allowing rewriting of the supply name since we'll probably find other
applications for things like modular board designs where name rewriting
is useful; since it's a function call with a parameter list it's harder
to add later than it would be with a struct.
