These regulators are not just disabled on Opi 3, they have different/no meaning.

Schematics allow for high amount of variability in the power tree (see all the
NC (not connected) / 0R resistors) in the schematic around AXP805. Every board
based on this Xunlong design can be subtly different.

I already suggested a maintainable solution, below. Where base dtsi has empty
config for regulators and every board based on that just defines it completely
for itself.

A few regulators (for CPU/GPU) will most probably have the same meaning on every
derived board, so these can probably be kept in dtsi without causing too much
annoyance.

It's unpleasant to have wrong regulator setup defined in an underlying dtsi, and
then trying to override it by removing/adding random properties in the board dts
for the new boards based on that, so that it fits.

The rest of the current HW descriptions in the sun50i-h6-orangepi.dtsi can be
shared (as of now).

thank you and regards,
o.
