Subject: [PATCH 1/5] regulator: Add ena_gpio_valid config

Most drivers do not set the ena_gpio field of struct regulator_config
before passing it to the regulator core. This is fine as long as the
gpio identifier that is passed is a positive integer. But the gpio
identifier 0 is also valid. So we are not able to decide wether we got a
real gpio identifier or not.

To be able to decide if it is a valid gpio that got passed, this patch
adds a ena_gpio_valid field that should be set if ena_gpio is a valid
gpio and should be used. It is a preperation patch for multiple patches
that adapt the drivers and fix the regulator core checks for this field.
