When the DVS GPIO is invalid, lp872x_init_dvs jumps to the
set_default_dvs_mode label, which instructs the chip not to use the DVS
pin at all and do it all in software instead (by clearing the
LP8720_EXT_DVS_M bit in the LP872X_GENERAL_CFG register).
That is reflected later in the code, when setting the bucks (the DVS pin
only applies to the bucks) by checking for the LP8720_EXT_DVS_M bit on
the LP872X_GENERAL_CFG register (in lp872x_select_buck_vout_addr) to
decide whether to use software or hardware DVS selection.
As far as I understood, everything goes well when the GPIO is invalid.
