Trivially broken how? Your mail in the original thread, if i read it right,
only claimed that it depends on CONFIG_REGULATOR being present while ideally it
should be invariant to the value of CONFIG_REGULATOR:

| Since the regulator on the device is optional this isn't the best fix, the

If there is some *other* bug there as well then of course it should be fixed
instead of worked around.
