Haha what a feat. If/when we run into that we simply invent a new
flag like GPIOD_ACTIVE_AMBIGUOUS.

Yeah I kind of already concluded that I need to pull the multiple user
reference counting out of the regulator core and take it over to the
GPIO subsystem so I'm going to attempt that for the next kernel
