I'm sorry, I'm not sure to understand. Would you prefer to not register
regulators that
are not described in the device-tree ?

In that case I could add:
if (!init_data)
continue;

This would permit to keep some regulators unmodified by the kernel. This
can be useful
because we have some regulators configured by boot loaders (for the DDR
at least) and
it would be more simple to not handle them in the kernel.

best regards,
pascal
