This patch somehow fell through the cracks. Sorry about that.

Both are really false positives. Both functions are callbacks for the
regulator core to use. If you look through the core code, rdev->desc->ops
is used to check for these callbacks before they are called. rdev is always
passed in, and rdev->desc is always valid after regulator_register.
