Yes, I've never seen the arch/arm bit of it before to see what the magic
writes actually do before - I did review the original code which just
used the regulator API normally but not this magic number stuff which
was just done in the platform.  The magic numbers might be OK for things
where it's device specific enough but the comments here make it clear
that some of the magic number setup is duplicating framework features.
