Ah, interesting.  ...so what we really need to be able to do is to say
that the regulator we for vqmmc have supports the ranges 3.0V - 3.3V
and 1.7V - 1.95V but not anything in between 1.95V ad 3.0V.  I have no
idea how to express that in the regulator framework.

Technically you could take the IO Voltage Domains code (responsible
for choosing the 1.8V range or the 3.3V range) and have it communicate
the requirements to the regulator framework if you could figure out
how to communicate them.

...of course if you implemented my suggestion of keeping vqmmc as the
highest voltage <= vmmc then maybe the whole point is moot and we
don't have to figure it out.  Just make sure that vmmc never goes
below 3.0V.
