Subject: [PATCH 0/7] regulator: fix deadlock vs memory reclaim

For systems that have eg. eMMC storage using voltage regulator, memory
reclaim path might call back into regulator subsystem. This means we
have to make sure no allocations happen with a regulator or regulator
list locked.

After this series I see no more lockdep complaints on my test system,
but please review and test further.

First four patches move allocations out of locked regions, next three
came as a drive-by cleanups.

Michał Mirosław (7):
  regulator: push allocation in regulator_init_coupling() outside of
  regulator: push allocation in regulator_ena_gpio_request() out of lock
  regulator: push allocations in create_regulator() outside of lock
  regulator: push allocation in set_consumer_device_supply() out of lock
  regulator: plug of_node leak in regulator_register()'s error path
  regulator: cleanup regulator_ena_gpio_free()
  regulator: remove superfluous lock in regulator_resolve_coupling()
