My first guess is that there's a real unpaired regulator call somewhere.

I actually meant to include this in the commit message, but I'm an
idiot and I used "--" to break up the parts of the commit message
which confused git when Mark applied it. Sigh. For the full commit
message, see:

In that message I said:

Looking quickly at 'pwm-vibra.c' it wouldn't surprise me at all if you
call regulator_disable() more times than regulator_enable(). If
that's true it should be fixed.
