My comment on v2 still stands here, the GPIO is not passed to
the regulator core on this path. Very sorry it took me so long
to review v2 (been one of those wonderful weeks at this end)
and then I managed to perfectly time reviewing it to the exact
second you sent v3.

I think apart from this the series looks good to me though.

Thanks,
