Subject[PATCH v3 1/2] dt-bindings: pfuze100: add optional disable switch-regulators binding
This binding is used to keep the backward compatibility with the current
dtb's [1]. The binding informs the driver that the unused switch regulators
can be disabled.
If it is not specified, the driver doesn't disable the switch regulators.


Signed-off-by: Marco Felsch <>

Changes in v3:
- rename dt binding, add -sw suffix
- fix description

Changes in V2:
- add more information about the binding
- rename binding and add vendor prefix
