So again the issues here are -core and -regulators, right?

Is that where you're seeing the warnings?

So all of this is still correct.

On the contrary.

Your request is to consciously ignore the hack I describe here.

Actually, this has served to highlight that your DTS is not correct.

Why are some devices represented in DT and some aren't?

If anything, I'm tempted to upgrade the info() print to warn().
