We only really need to lock the supplies when doing the actual mechanics
of voltage changes so I'm not sure I see a big issue here - if we always
go through balancing first then voltage setting it should be fine.  If
everything is always balancing (even uncoupled regulators) then part of
the transition should be moving some if not all of the data updates to
balancing.
