It seems that in regulator_desc structure a default value of ramp delay
can be set, and the ones specified in dt can override it.

So just add .ramp_delay = 200 in the driver's regulator_desc part?

Should a comment be added that explains it's only an experienced value
on Allwinner H3/H5 boards VDD-CPUX usage?
