I don't see any deadlock there? Just a straightforward set of
dependencies. Anything circular would clearly be a driver bug.

The driver should just register all the DCDCs before the LDOs, then
everything will sort itself out. It's *possible* you might see a system
trying to link things together regulators of the same type but that's
very unusual as it makes the system less efficient.
