Subject: Applied "regulator: core: simplify return value on suported_voltage" to the regulator tree

The patch

   regulator: core: simplify return value on suported_voltage

has been applied to the regulator tree at for-5.2

All being well this means that it will be integrated into the linux-next
tree (usually sometime in the next 24 hours) and sent to Linus during
the next merge window (or sooner if it is a bug fix), however if
problems are discovered then the patch may be dropped or reverted.  

You may get further e-mails resulting from automated or manual testing
and review of the tree, please engage with people reporting problems and
send followup patches addressing any issues that are reported if needed.

If any updates are required or you are submitting further changes they
should be sent as incremental updates against current git, existing
patches will not be replaced.

Please add any relevant lists and maintainers to the CCs when replying
to this mail.

Subject: [PATCH] regulator: core: simplify return value on suported_voltage

All the current clients of this API  assume that 0 corresponds
to a failure and non-zero to a pass therefore ignoring the need to
handle a negative error code.

This commit modifies the API to follow that standard since returning a
negative (EINVAL) doesn't seem to provide enough value to justify
the need to handle it.
