Is it mandatory for regulators to use regmap? Also I'm not sure how this
will work with MFDs, since the device may not be the actual bus device,
but rather a child of the MFD (and what we want access to is the MFD).
Perhaps for regmaps that would work in most cases since MFDs seem to
aften share the regmap with their children. However, the code in
regulator_register() at least indicates that even then it's possible to
have a regmap in children that's different from the top-level MFD.
