thanks, I am back to study again.

Two fixed regulators for two USB vbus, there are no relationships beween
them, but both of them needs PMIC 5V (swbst at pfuse) to be enabled.

I need to care about its parent's status, currently, the usb code does
not consider parent regulator, so after below patch, the voltage of
vbus is incorrect, due to parent regulator is disabled after boots up,
there is no user for this parent regulator.

regulator: pfuze100: Support SWB enable/disable

The SWB regulators have the ability to be turned on and off.
Add enable/disable support for these regulators.
