Looking at this I suspect we need to re-add the code for matching
regulators on the actual struct device and do that since this is going
to be very error prone.

Possibly, up to them.

No? What would make you say that?

I'm not aware of any drivers that get this wrong.

Every single sound driver gets this right, none of them assume the name
is global. What makes you say that they assume names are global?
