Using the fields in the regulator_desc as you can see from the standard

You need to represent this in your driver, the sleep mode controls
should either be controlled using the suspend API or the GPIO control
needs to be visible in the driver. It's also OK to ignore the GPIO
control for now and do it later if complex work is needed to represent
it in the driver.
