My initial idea was to do this similarly to the S5M8767 regulator (where
there is also 4th mode: low power). The presence of GPIO in DTS can
simplify the bindings but on the other hand it wouldn't be compatible
with S5M8767 regulator driver. This may complicate the merge of these
drivers.

What is your opinion on this - should I abandon the "op_mode" idea and
use presence of GPIO?

Best regards,
Krzysztof
