This problem specifically arises in the latest RPMh regulator patch [1] if
regulator-min-microvolt and regulator-max-microvolt are specified for a
VRM managed RPMh regulator device but the qcom,regulator-initial-microvolt
property is not provided. Therefore, listing
qcom,regulator-initial-microvolt is a way to avoid regulator registration

I'm fine with this constant. Hopefully Mark is as well.

I'll make this modification if needed.
