See the function 'regulator_ena_gpio_request()', it states that the same
GPIO pin can be shared among regulators.

We had the same situation for Tegra124 Jetson TK1 but I don't think that
adding a pseudo intermediate regulator is cleaner. If the GPIO controls
more than one regulator, I don't see why is it necessary to change the
DT. There are several other people reporting the same problem with
various different boards. So this does seem to be a common usage.
