I thought a bit on whether it makes sense to merge this patch into 6/6
since that is modifying some code you introduce here. But I think its
probably better to keep it separate like you have it now.

6/6 is about dropping support for vbus gpio, where as here you are
letting regulator be used for handing overcurrent detected using oci gpio.

Having it separate makes it possible to revert dropping support for vbus
gpio while keeping this functionality ;)

Unnecessary empty line here, that too one that introduces white space
error. Please drop.
