No, look at the bindings - we support a bunch of different
suspend states matching the different suspend states that the
kernel as a whole supports. We don't assume that the device will
know this but you can always use the current suspend we're going
for to decide where to update.

The framework doesn't care how a device is controlled, that's up
to the device. Like I said I recommend figuring out what
voltages are useful to have quick access to at runtime, for
example it's likely that it's good to have quick access to the
highest voltage that's been set (and/or the top of the
constraints).

I can't parse the above, sorry. What is "regulator group
control"?
