This appears to be an improvement on Mike Looijmans patch:

The regulator_put() calls are appropriate but I wonder if we should
take this a step farther. Ulf is sure to point out that
mmc_regulator_get_supply() can be used to get regulators (though it
does stuff the pointers in host->mmc->supply.vmmc/vqmmc instead of
host->vmmc/vqmmc). However, that function doesn't put back the
reference to vmmc if the request for vqmmc returns EPROBE_DEFER. If
it did, it believe it could be used here to simplify the error
handling as all the regulator checks would happen up front. What do
you think?
