Even better would be to just enumerate all the properties on the node
and request anything with a FOO-supply name.  That way we can keep
using standard regulator bindings that name the supplies after their
actual names on the device.

Or just dynamically allocate the array and resize as needed if it starts
to get to be a problem.
