[PATCH 1/2] regulator: DT: Add support to scale ramp delay based on platform behavior

From: Laxman Dewangan

It is observed that voltage change in given rail affected by the load
and the capacitor in the rail. This may cause the slow ramp in voltage
against what PMIC has programmed.

The property regulator-ramp-delay provides the ramp delay configuration
for PMIC but actual voltage settling time may change based on platform.

Add new property "regulator-ramp-delay-scale" for platform specific scaling
in final ramp delay calculation. On this case, final wait delay time
for voltage change is calculated as the
DIV_ROUND_UP(ramp_delay * ramp_delay_scale, 100)

The value is provided in the term of percentage i.e. 300% means it will
do the 3x delay of calculated value.
