This is totally normal for regulators, it's the only way that suspend
modes can function sensibly since suspend mode configuration is
typically not capable off supplying the processor. If your driver is
currently trying to use the normal operating registers then it's buggy.

There is no need to add new operations, we already have a number of
suspend specific operations covering enable state, modes and voltage.
You should just use those, there's already code to call them.
