I see. Thank you.

So, what do you think about DT like below?

sky81452@2c {
	compatible = "skyworks,sky81452";
	reg = <0x2c>;

	backlight {
		compatible = "skyworks,sky81452-backlight";
		name = "pwm-backlight";
		enable = <0x3F>;

	regulator {
		compatible = "skyworks,sky81452-regulator";

		lout@0 {
			regulator-name = "LOUT";
			regulator-min-microvolt = <4500000>;
			regulator-max-microvolt = <8000000>;
