Subject[PATCH v2 0/7] regulator: fix deadlock vs memory reclaim
For systems that have eg. eMMC storage using voltage regulator, memory
reclaim path might call back into regulator subsystem. This means we
have to make sure no allocations happen with a regulator or regulator
list locked.

After this series I see no more lockdep complaints on my test system,
but please review and test further.

First four patches move allocations out of locked regions, next three
came as a drive-by cleanups.
