That's not a requirement that I'd particularly expect - it's not unusual
for devices to have multiple different styles of regulators in a single
chip (eg, DCDCs often have quite different register maps to LDOs).

It seems a bit of a jump to add a new driver - it's just another
descriptor and ops structure isn't it?  Though as ever with the Qualcomm
stuff this driver is pretty baroque which doesn't entirely help though I
think it's just another regulator type which there's already some
handling for.
