It's a more complex solution but this could be handled in the core instead.
Basically the core would treat min_dropout_uV as zero if the regulator is
currently in bypass mode.

In theory a function could be added in regulator_ops to ask a regulator driver
what requirements it has for its supply but this does not seem necessary.
