Ah yes, good point.

Do you know what of_node_get() does?

If that's the case you should add 'depends on OF' in the Kconfig.

Doesn't the regulator driver have its own header file?  Why are these
in a shared file if they're not used anywhere else?

Then why is it in here?

Did you copy this code from somewhere, if so, where? 

Okay, I just answered my own question.  There is so much common code
in between this and palmas, there is no way I'm going to accept this
driver.  Please merge it in with the palmas driver!
