Subject: [PATCH V4 1/2] regulator: DT: Add settling time property for non-linear voltage change

Some regulators (some PWM regulators) have the voltage transition
exponentially. On such cases, the settling time for voltage change
is treated as constant time.

Add DT property for providing the settling time for any level of
voltage change for non-linear voltage change.

This patch is continuation of discussion on patch
   regulator: pwm: Fix regulator ramp delay for continuous mode
   https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9216857/
where is it discussed to have separate property for PWM which has
exponential voltage transition.

Changes from V1:
- Pass the flag to tell that voltage ramp is exponential instead of
  providing delay.

Changes from V2:
- Based on review comment from V1, make the settling time property
  independent of the regulator-ramp-delay and move this out of PWM
  regulator.

Changes from V3:
- The change was sent long back and resuming this patch.
- Added Rob's ack from V3 and content is same as V3.
   https://lkml.org/lkml/2016/11/30/632
- Rebase on linux-next tag 20170330 for resend.
