Well, I figured that it would be best to disable the EN pin when we're
not using any of the regulators, since that allows the chip to enter
standby mode (and thus consume less power).

Implementing that logic in the driver seems very redundant when we're
one step away from doing it with the core regulator framework.
It is also likely that in the future, other chips will use and need to
handle a global enable pin for the same purpose, while allowing
regulator configuration and enable via registers.

It also doesn't hurt regulators that only use a GPIO for enable.

The diff to do this is very minimal, I already have a patch ready, that
I could send if there is a chance for it to get through.
