I understand that you have objection that devm_regulator_enable() and
regulator_enable() can be used together, I just do not see it being a
problem in practice.

I still think we need a way for the drivers to "undo" the enable
automatically. Do you have some other idea how to achieve this? Do you
maybe want regulator_put() to undo all outstanding disables for the
regulator? Then drivers would not need to care about disabling
regulators in error paths/driver teardown.

Where would you want to take the API?
