Well, if the regulator is in bypass mode then it is by definition not
regulating and so it's like programming the voltage while switched off,
setting the target for when it starts regulating again. It's a weirder
use case but it does feel like the consistent thing to do at least.
The driver shouldn't enter/leave bypass without being explicitly told to
so since there'll be a performance impact.

That's something we could add in constraints, though the actual process
of implementing it might get messy if there's restrictions like having
to power off (though from further down the thread I see that might not
apply to this device).
