Since the point of this change is AFAICT that this regulator only has a
single linear range it seems like it should just be able to use the
existing generic functions shouldn't it?  It just needs it's own
set/get_voltage_sel() operations.  As far as I can see the main thing
the driver is doing with the custom stuff is handling the fact that
there's multiple ranges but that's not an issue for this regulator.
It's possible I'm missing something there but that was the main thing
(and we do have some generic support for multiple linear ranges in the
helper code already, can't remember why this driver isn't using that -
the ranges overlap IIRC?).

TBH looking at the uses of find_range() I'm not sure they're 100%
sensible as they are - the existing _time_sel() is assuming we only need
to work out the ramp time between voltages in the same range which is
going to have trouble.
