Regulators should never be marked as optional unless they can be
physically absent. It is true that Linux has code to handle partially
defined device trees but we shouldn't rely on other OSs having similar
code and it's better practice to have board device trees be fully
specified, it means that if we need the regulator information for some
future thing it's more likely to be there and it's less likely that bugs
which do things like cause the regulator to be powered off incorrectly
will be introduced in future.
