I'm not sure about this. I moving those assignments I achieve two goals:
1. consistency: upon return from that function both supply struct members
contain either a pointer to the respective regulator, or an error code,
and both regulators have been tried.
2. maximum flexibility: we try both regulators in any case and let
individual drivers decide what is acceptable to them. It does seem more
natural to rely more on the "vmmc" supply than on "vqmmc," but if a driver
decides to go only with the latter one - why should we prohibit that?
