You should never need to modify the driver for this, the regulator
framework will only change things if it's been given permission to do
so - simply don't specify a regulator-allowed-modes property and the
mode will be left alone (we should probably still use -initial-mode if
it's specified but I'd need to check if we actually do).

I'd like to see how closely hardware adheres to the spec too...
