This approach does not look good and the reason for which I did not use 
this core api here was:
- The palma device support ramp of 10mV/us, 5mV/us and 2.5mV/us. So if 
client pass the other than this value then register is programmed to 
nearest high value.
In this case, the constraint->ramp_delay is not much accurate with 
register level programming and need to update with actual register 
programmed. Hence we need to have local equivalent to the register 
programmed and use this new value instead of constraints->ramp_delay.

- Second reason is that TPS65913 ES1.0/ES2.0 has the hw errata on which 
the output voltage become slow ramp near to final value. TI suggested to 
use 1.5x as SWAR. So we need to use the local implementation to adjust this.
The changes for this errata is not there because we will need to read 
the version register and Ian has posted the series which is not merged 
yet. So waiting for his series to be merged for this errata implementation.
