Hi all,
sorry it took me so long to answer.

I'm trying to figure out what is so special about these boards. The only strange
thing, that I haven't noticed at first, is that all regulators share a common
supply - dummy regulator. It is defined in anatop_regulator.c.

I have been struggling to reproduce the issue on my exynos boards, but all I
have achieved is getting the same lockdep warning, but everything else works
fine. I think it was a false positive caused by using the same indices in
lock_coupled() and lock_supply().
