But in fact, the original dts is not correct without 'regulator-always-
on'since SW4 is the critical DDR power rail, although, it's kept on in
the previous kernel by no switches enable/disable interfaces provided
in pfuze driver. Adding new property which can be done totally by the
common 'regulator-always-on' is not a good choice. Keep the dts patch
adding 'regulator-always-on' ahead of pfuze driver pach adding
enable/disable interface is enough for such case I think.
