There's plenty of examples in mainline...

Can you please clarify why you're registering two fixed voltage
regulators for the switch chip and how you're doing that?  The picture
above looks like you should just have a single regulator there and
nothing should care if the either regulator is enabled when querying the
parent for its voltage.
