This doesn't say anything about how the GPIO input is expected to be
controlled, for voltage setting any runtime control would need to be
done by the driver and it sounds like that's all that can be controlled.
The way this reads I'd expect one use of this to be for fast voltage
setting for example (you could even combine that with suspend sequencing
using the internal sequencer if you mux back to the sequencer during
