This is one of the reasons I thought this was better suited to being done in the
pinctrl/pinmux side. If you configure the GPIO as for regulator control then
the code can automatically configure the GPIO for input. That doesn't then need
to be in the regulator driver.
But yes we wouldn't really want to configure a regulator to be controlled via a
GPI when it's configured as a GPO as it makes no sense.
