Can you run a git bisect to try to identify the commit that
caused things to fail?

Look to see if there is a device driver bound to that device, or
check if the parent regulator is visible in /sys/class/regulators.  
You'll also see a mesage printed out for each regulator as it
instantiates in the boot logs, you can check there too.

Please fix your mail client to word wrap within paragraphs at something
substantially less than 80 columns.  Doing this makes your messages much
easier to read and reply to.
