Sorry my english wasn't the best.. Imagine this case: The bootloader
turned the display on to show an early bootlogo. Now if I miss the
regulator-boot-on property the display is turned off and on. The turn
off comes from the regulator probe, the turn on comes from the cosumer.
Is that assumption correct?
