Which is quite likely on anything complex and means that hardcoding
regulator assumptions is bad.

I actually see two ways of attacking that, one is that the dummy
regulator *and* the compiled in regulator system have a standard
regulator value that can be passed which means "report success, move
along nothing to see" that could be passed into drivers, the other is to
not stick the stuff in drivers.

I suspect the former may be cleaner ?
