They seem to be doing basically the same thing here, you've got a linear
map of selector to voltage too AFAICT.

This all seems like it's at the implementation detail level - the bit
that seems like we should be able to share it is the big picture bit for
how we describe how the AP side stuff and PMIC are hooked up without
having to have a bunch of completely non-framework stuff for things
like describing the PMIC.
