Hmm, I do not quite follow.  The regulator core needs to know whether a
regulator device is present or absent, before the regulator is
registered, so that regulator core can decide to return -EDEFER_PROBE
or -ENODEV when consumer calls regulator_get_optional() to get the
regulator.  Are you saying platform can call
regulator_has_full_constraints() to help regulator core to make this
decision?  I do not understand how it works.
