Add support for TPS65086 PMIC regulators.

The regulators set consists of 3 Step-down Controllers, 3 Step-down
Converters, 3 LDOs, 3 Load Switches, and a Sink and Source LDO. The
output voltages are configurable and are meant to supply power to a
SoC and/or other components.

An earlier version of this patch has already been applied, please don't
resend already applied patches but send incremental patches with any

Odd, I didn't seem to get any message for this getting applied. Looks
like only a couple lines difference from the version in the regulators
branch, I don't imagine you are able to rebase that with these changes?

Anyway the reason that line needed changed is over a confusion in
what the 'of_node' does in 'struct regulator_config'. The description
seems to make it seem like it is the node that gets checked for
init data.

* @of_node: OpenFirmware node to parse for device tree bindings (may be
* NULL).

But the 'of_node' that is actually searched is the one given in
regulator_config->dev->of_node. Is this intended behavior (drivers
assume it is so it probably has to be now) and if so, the above
description might need to be clarified as too what that 'of_node'
pointer really does?
