Subject[PATCH 0/7] Really implement Qualcomm LAB/IBB regulators
Okay, the title may be a little "aggressive"? However, the qcom-labibb
driver wasn't really .. doing much.
The current form of this driver is only taking care of enabling or
disabling the regulators, which is pretty useless if they were not
pre-set from the bootloader, which sets them only if continuous
splash is enabled.
Moreover, some bootloaders are setting a higher voltage and/or a higher
current limit compared to what's actually required by the attached
hardware (which is, in 99.9% of the cases, a display) and this produces
a higher power consumption, higher heat output and a risk of actually
burning the display if kept up for a very long time: for example, this
is true on at least some Sony Xperia MSM8998 (Yoshino platform) and
especially on some Sony Xperia SDM845 (Tama platform) smartphones.

In any case, the main reason why this change was necessary for us is
that, during the bringup of Sony Xperia MSM8998 phones, we had an issue
with the bootloader not turning on the display and not setting the lab
and ibb regulators before booting the kernel, making it impossible to
powerup the display.

With this said, this patchset enables setting voltage, current limiting,
overcurrent and short-circuit protection.. and others, on the LAB/IBB
Each commit in this patch series provides as many informations as
possible about what's going on and testing methodology.
