SubjectApplied "regulator: core: Drop lockdep annotation in drms_uA_update()" to the regulator tree
The patch

regulator: core: Drop lockdep annotation in drms_uA_update()

has been applied to the regulator tree at

All being well this means that it will be integrated into the linux-next
tree (usually sometime in the next 24 hours) and sent to Linus during
the next merge window (or sooner if it is a bug fix), however if
problems are discovered then the patch may be dropped or reverted.

You may get further e-mails resulting from automated or manual testing
and review of the tree, please engage with people reporting problems and
send followup patches addressing any issues that are reported if needed.

If any updates are required or you are submitting further changes they
should be sent as incremental updates against current git, existing
patches will not be replaced.

Please add any relevant lists and maintainers to the CCs when replying
to this mail.

Subject: [PATCH] regulator: core: Drop lockdep annotation in drms_uA_update()

commit e5e21f70bfd3 ("regulator: core: Take lock before applying system
load") took the regulator lock before calling drms_uA_update() in order
to silence a lockdep warning during regulator_register().

However, we are not supposed to need locks at this point as the regulator
is in the process of being registered, so there should be no possibility
of concurrent access.

Instead, remove the unnecessary locking and simply drop the lockdep
annotation, since it is no longer valid.
