Will that be documented somewhere? If not, can we put a comment in the
device tree so people know how to enable it?

I already tested it. From what I can see, it's behaving normally.

I will run some tests on the 3517 using the 3430 table instead of the
3630. I didn't look into great detail as to what the tables do, but it
might be sufficient.
Otherwise, I can copy-paste the 3630 table and change the
multi-regulator off and test it that way if you'd prefer.
Let me know your preference, and I can do it.
