As Lorenzo explained this is really not a good idea, ACPI has a power
management model which is just being ignored here. If you're producing
systems using ACPI you really need to use ACPI in a joined up fashion
rather than just blindly importing all DT bindings into ACPI. While
there are many areas where ACPI just doesn't do anything and as a result
it does make sense to reuse existing DT bindings there are also plenty
of areas where work has been done on the ACPI side. Regulators and
power management are definitely one of those areas.
