No, if the voltage is variable we can't tell what the current
constraints are without something telling us so we just don't vary the
voltage until we're told to do this. If we immediately lower the

There are constraints set by the board DTS. Isn't it reasonable the
framework to set the voltage to minimum voltage from the dts if the current
set one is bellow it?
Yes, if it's out of bounds for the constraints we should bring it
up/down to the minimum/maximum (when copying people into a thread it's a
good idea to explain what the problem you are trying to solve is,
especially if you're throwing around bodges).
We have this regulator definition in omap3-n900.dts:
regulator-name = "V28_A";
regulator-min-microvolt = <2800000>;
regulator-max-microvolt = <3000000>;
regulator-always-on; /* due VIO leak to AIC34 VDDs */
The regulator is enabled during probe, but the voltage is not
configured. The default reset voltage of the regulator is 2.6V.
So basically when the regulator is enabled, it uses a voltage,
which is out of the DT specified range.
We also have a second problem: If the system has been rebooted from
Nokia's stock kernel the regulator is left in STANDBY mode. Since
the mode is not configured during probe, it results in different
problems. According to my understanding it can be fixed trivially
regulator-initial-mode = <2>;
