I guess we could drive powerdown low after disabling the regulators
and clocks, but that wouldn't work for the cases where the regulators
are actually shared with something else, especially if that is not
related to the same camera module.

Good point, I always keep forgetting about the ability to probe OF
drivers from ACPI. Then we also need to remove the #if
IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_OF) from ov02a10_of_match.
