I know in the datasheet this isn't marked as an alternate function specifically
but to me having regulator control by the chip's own GPI is an alternative
function for that GPIO pin, in the same way a specific pin can be used for
SYS_EN or Watchdog control. It's a dedicated purpose rather than being a normal
GPI.

See the following as an example of what I'm suggesting:

https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/latest/source/Documentation/devicetree/bindings/pinctrl/pinctrl-palmas.txt

You could then pass the pinctrl information to the regulator driver and use
that rather than having device specific bindings for this. That's at least my
current interpretation of this anyway.
