I tested this here, on the Lenovo Yoga C630, after creating a patch to
do basically the same thing as the db845c does.  One thing I noticed, if
PWRSEQ=y and the rest are =m, there is a build error.  I suppose once
the full set is posted and not RFC, I can send the patch for that. 

One question I have, if you don't mind, in patch 11, you add a second
channel to qca power sequencer.  I've added that here, but in the c630's
dts, "vreg_l23a_3p3: ldo23" is empty, so I added the same numbers in for
the regulator, and I'm wondering how to test that it's actually working
