Please, correct me if I'm wrong in the following:
1) mapping is what kept in the regulator_map_list;
2) the only way to list something for this mapping is to use one of
regulator drivers that will call regulator_register() at the end;
3) in case of fixed voltage regulator it prepares configuration and
description (based on platform code for example) of the regulator and
calls devm_regulator_register();
4) regulator_register() _will not_ add fixed regulator to the mapping if
GPIO is deferred;
5) regulator_dev_lookup() didn't see the regulator before
deferred_probe_initcall() happened.

If the above is correct, how to add mapping to be seen in 5) ?
