The reason I didn't bother documenting the regulators node was that
since this is a child device
driver of an mfd device, there is already a child driver for the
regulators with its own documentation

I wasn't sure how I should handle this, as splitting the bindings to
make logic sense in the binding
layout (charger under power_supply, and regulators under regulator) or
combine them somehow
into a single documentation entry common to the device. The latter seems
to make more sense to me,
but since there aren't any dt specific entries for the core mfd part
currently, it doesn't have its own
documentation, and sticking the charger info under the regulators seemed
backwards to me.

I thought doing it this way would be a good way of starting a discussion
around how to handle this.

thanks for starting it Stephen :)
