Fixed regulators are used to nicely model the regulators which aren't tied to
any PMIC. But for some cases we use them to represent supplies when there is
no support for the specific PMIC present in the kernel and they are turned
on/configured by the bootloader (this is what happening here).

And there is no use of declaring fixed regulators when there is no consumer.
Even if you don't define these, the corresponding supplies in the board will
always be in the same state configured by the bootloader. So I'd suggest you
to remove this for now.

Since I don't have the schematics to check, please make sure you name the
regulators as mentioned in the schematics (this could vary from board to board,
so don't just copy from others).

Thanks,
Mani
