Yup, exactly.  I'll admit wasn't originally aware of the tolerance API
and my first thought after your email was to reimplement it atop my
patch.  ...but just having tolerance right now also seems sane.

I'm being dense, can you give more details?  Do you want me to grab
the mutex or do something smarter like track the voltage / tolerance
requested by multiple clients and resolve them, or ...?

I didn't grab any mutex because I thought all of the attributes I was
looking at were unchanging.  If they're not then
regulator_is_supported_voltage() probably has a bug since I'm reading
roughly the same attributes that it is.  ...and in fact the flow of my
code is also amost the same as regulator_is_supported_voltage()...
