of_map_mode name is used here to match the struct regulator_desc field by
the same name that it is assigned to [1]. Do you think that the name
should be changed to something else?

I'll change this.

This is present to specifically allow for a future change to support
overriding the regulator_type value from device tree in order to force
RPMh resources to be handled via XOB instead of VRM in a board-specific
manner. I included support of the property qcom,rpmh-resource-type in the
first version of this patch. I removed this property from the second
version of the patch based upon review feedback since SDM845 does not
explicitly need it (though an upcoming chip will).

I'll remove regulator_type from struct rpmh_vreg. It shouldn't be
particularly painful to add it back in when needed for XOB override support.

I chose to use '<' here in order to maintain the non-inclusive limit
semantics of the downstream RPMh regulator driver. E.g. with an LPM
threshold of 10000 uA, load_uA == 10000 would result in a request for HPM
instead of LPM.

I suppose that I can change this to '<=' to be more logically consistent.

Are you suggesting something like this?

#define PMIC4_LDO_MODE_RETENTION 4
#define PMIC4_LDO_MODE_LPM 5
#define PMIC4_LDO_MODE_HPM 7

static const u32 pmic_mode_map_pmic4_ldo[REGULATOR_MODE_STANDBY + 1] = {
[REGULATOR_MODE_STANDBY] = PMIC4_LDO_MODE_RETENTION,
[REGULATOR_MODE_IDLE] = PMIC4_LDO_MODE_LPM,
[REGULATOR_MODE_NORMAL] = -EINVAL,
[REGULATOR_MODE_FAST] = PMIC4_LDO_MODE_HPM,
};

#define PMIC4_SMPS_MODE_RETENTION 4
#define PMIC4_SMPS_MODE_PFM 5
#define PMIC4_SMPS_MODE_AUTO 6
#define PMIC4_SMPS_MODE_PWM 7

static const u32 pmic_mode_map_pmic4_smps[REGULATOR_MODE_STANDBY + 1] = {
[REGULATOR_MODE_STANDBY] = PMIC4_SMPS_MODE_RETENTION,
[REGULATOR_MODE_IDLE] = PMIC4_SMPS_MODE_PFM,
[REGULATOR_MODE_NORMAL] = PMIC4_SMPS_MODE_AUTO,
[REGULATOR_MODE_FAST] = PMIC4_SMPS_MODE_PWM,
};

I considered using this approach, but it didn't seem like it increased
readability and did increase the line count. Each of the constants would
only be used once. Would you prefer this style (or something else)?

Thanks,
David
