Ok, so the dw_mmc driver is enabling vqmmc, that's good.

I see, so probably until we have a way to define the operating mode for
each regulator using DT we should set the opmode to normal when enabling a
regulator independently of the value the hardware register reported on probe.

Can you please test the following change [0] so I can post as a proper
patch? Doug, Mark do you think that forcing the regulator to opmode normal
when enabling is the right solution here?
