There is this upstream, with "otg-vbus":

Related search:

I don't think it needs a "regulator-" prefix, and maybe the driver
name is a suffix. We could also recommend the "regulator-name" value
for OTG here:

a. Make the above patch wrong :-)
usb-otg-5v (generic)
usb-otg-5v-bq2419x (specific)

b. Follow a weak precedent
otg-vbus (generic)
otg-vbus-bq2419x (specific)
