My understanding is that regulator core have to make sure an enabled
regulator to be in REGULATOR_STATUS_NORMAL. Now it enables the
regulator, but does not make it in REGULATOR_STATUS_NORMAL. There are 3
places set_mode() is called in regulator/core.c - in drms_uA_update(),
in regulator_set_mode() and in set_machine_constraints().
set_machine_constraints() calls set_mode() only if there is initial mode
for that regulator. I can't find a call to regulator_set_mode() anywhere
in the tree.

From the documentation:

"regulator-initial-mode: initial operating mode...."

Does the above imply that every regulator present in the system must
have "initial-mode" defined even if it is "always-on" regulator?

Also, who puts a regulator out of REGULATOR_STATUS_NORMAL if there are
no more consumers?

It might be that I am not getting the logic behind.

Ivo
