I dug into this. It turns out there are some layers of mess....

The DT binding for "regulator-fixed" specifies that enable-active-high
should be set for polarity inversion. For historical reasons, I guess,
we screwed up. The example in the binding uses that.

I interpreted the binding such that also specifying GPIO_ACTIVE_LOW
was essentially illegal, so I patched gpiolib in commit
"gpio: of: Add special quirk to parse regulator flags"
so it looks like that:

+ (of_device_is_compatible(np, "reg-fixed-voltage") ||
+ of_device_is_compatible(np, "regulator-gpio"))) {
+ /*
+ * The regulator GPIO handles are specified such that the
+ * presence or absence of "enable-active-high" solely controls
+ * the polarity of the GPIO line. Any phandle flags must
+ * be actively ignored.
+ */
+ if (*flags & OF_GPIO_ACTIVE_LOW) {
+ pr_warn("%s GPIO handle specifies active low -
+ of_node_full_name(np));
+ *flags &= ~OF_GPIO_ACTIVE_LOW;
+ }
+ if (!of_property_read_bool(np, "enable-active-high"))
+ *flags |= OF_GPIO_ACTIVE_LOW;
+ }

This means no matter if you specify active low, the GPIO
will be treated as active low, as this is the default behaviour.
We will warn if things are overspecified as active low on the
flag as well.

The second clause (notice nagation!) specifies that
if enable-acive-high flag is NOT specified, we will be active

Sadly this only handled the undocumented fixed
regulator binding "reg-fixed-voltage". So I need to fix it
for "regulator-fixed" as well, and then it "should work".

I will follow up with a patch.
