Please bear in mind that the regulator bindings are all about what is
being done to connect the PMIC to the rest of the system on a given
board; this means that it is almost always a bad idea to have a generic
include file for the PMIC since while many boards may be similar other
boards may differ and it's potentially unsafe to try to handle things

It can be a good idea to have a .dsti file for the common elements of a
widely used reference design but that's a different thing.
