True, I added in the series since of_get_regulation_constraints() checks
if the struct regulator_desc * pointer is not NULL and so drivers that
don't initialize the struct of_regulator_match containing that pointer
will make that check to fail and the pointer be wrongly dereferenced.

Sorry, next time I'll post fixes separately and make the series depend on
that instead.

Best regards,
Javier
