Subject: [PATCH v3 2/5] regulator: core: Add regulator mode and initial mode properties

Some regulators can run on different operating modes (opmodes). This
allows systems to choose the most efficient opmode for each regulator.

This patch adds a "regulator-initial-mode" property to configure at
startup the operating mode for the regulators that support changing
its mode during normal operation and a "regulator-mode" to be used as
a property of the suspend states "regulator-state-[mem/disk]" nodes
for the regulators that supports changing its operating mode when the
system enters in a suspend state.

The set of possible modes that a regulator can operate depends on
the hardware capabilities so a list of generic operating modes can't
be provided. Instead, each hardware should define the list of valid
operating modes for the regulators found on that device.
