This is to fix build error after NO_AUTO_INLINE is introduced. If this option
is enabled, GCC will not auto-inline functions that are not explicitly marked
as inline.

In this case (no CONFIG_OF), the copmiler will report error in regulator_dev_lookup().
W/o NO_AUTO_INLINE, function of_get_regulator() is auto-inlined and then the call
to of_find_regulator_by_node() is optimized out since of_get_regulator() always
return NULL. W/ NO_AUTO_INLINE, the return value of of_get_regulator() is a variable
so the call to of_find_regulator_by_node() cannot be optimized out.

static struct regulator_dev *regulator_dev_lookup(struct device *dev,
const char *supply)
struct regulator_dev *r = NULL;
struct device_node *node;
struct regulator_map *map;
const char *devname = NULL;

regulator_supply_alias(&dev, &supply);

/* first do a dt based lookup */
if (dev && dev->of_node) {
node = of_get_regulator(dev, supply);
if (node) {
r = of_find_regulator_by_node(node);
if (r)
return r;

It is safe we just provide a stub of_find_regulator_by_node() if no CONFIG_OF.
