Ah, got it. So the whole point here is to be able to implement either
the function "set_load" or the function "get_optimum_mode". We need
some sort of table to convert from current to mode. That's what this
table does.

My argument to David was that since set_load / get_optimum_mode were
features of the regulator core these should actually be standard
properties and not Qualcomm-specific ones.
