After reading the datasheets thoroughly, it seems to me that for the
lp8720, the EN pin is used to enable the regulators output, which is a
good fit for the core regulator GPIO framework, as there is no reason to
keep it on when no regulator is in use. The serial interface is already
available when EN=0 and regulators can be configured in that state. The
lp8725 seems seems to behave the same when CONFIG=0 (the datasheet
clearly states: "CONFIG=0: EN=1 turns on outputs or standby mode if
EN=0"). On the other hand, it is indeed used as a power-on pin when

Since my intent here is to cover the lp8720 use case, I suggest that we
implement this using the core regulator GPIO framework (I have patches
ready for that) and leave out the case where CONFIG=1, which could be
dealt with later by providing that piece of information via platform
data (and devicetree) and then either use the regulator GPIO framework
(when CONFIG=0 and default) or register the GPIO within the driver and
keep it on at all times (when CONFIG=1).

I could most certainly implement that behaviour, but I'd rather leave it
to someone else (or at least the testing) since I don't have any lp8725
to play with.

What do you think?
