Hello guys,

I'm working on the CPUFreq driver for NVIDIA Tegra and it requires the coupled-regulators functionality, hence I'm interested in getting the coupled regulators series finalized ASAP and want to help with it.

It looks to me that the infinite-loop problem is caused by the voltage value that is getting rounded-up by the driver because it isn't aligned to the uV_step. IIUC, uV_step is relevant only for the "linear" regulators and hence we can't simply set the best_delta to uV_step to solve the problem. Other solution could be to bail out of the loop once regulator sets value equal to the "desired".

Tony, could you please give a try to the patch below?

Do the following:

1) git cherry-pick 696861761a58d8c93605b5663824929fb6540f16
2) git cherry-pick 456e7cdf3b1a14e2606b8b687385ab2e3f23a49a
3) Apply this patch:
