There's something odd about several recent patch serieses you've posted,
they end up with patch 2 before instead of after patch 1. Anyway...

I generally send a patches on single git-send command
git send-emal --to=ldewangan@xxxxxxxxxx 0000.patch 0001.patch

So file names are in seq but not sure why it is not on seq. Something mail exchange resuffle.
Probably I need to send one by one...

+ if (config.init_data)
+ pmic->desc[id].supply_name = palmas_regs_info[id].sname;
This looks wrong... why is it conditional on init_data?

Some of the rails are not used in board and hence their inputs are also left floating (unconnected). In this case, during DT population, I did not put entry
i.e. if ldo1 is not used then ldo1-in is not connected on board and hence
entry on DT


is not there.

The regulator core register the regulator even if there is NULL init_data and in this case, it tries to findout the input-supply (provided through desc->supply_name) and it fails to find out the supply handle and so regulator register fails cause all regulator registration to fail.

So providing the dec->supply_name only in case of valid init_data.
