I *think* it's because the regulator is already fetched by the
panfrost driver itself to enable it
(the devfreq code currently does not support enabling the regulator,
it can only control the voltage)

I'm not sure what to do about this though

good catch, thank you!
are you happy with the general approach here or do you think that
dev_pm_opp_set_regulators is the wrong way to go (for whatever
reason)?
