We cannot fail to probe if some of the regulators are not registered 
successfully, as depending on the probing sequence, there will be some 
regulators, which won't be available when registering others. We can fail when 
resolving coupling if we encounter other errors such as max_spread not provided 
or disability to set voltage. Maybe that is what you meant.

I have two ideas how to handle it. We can prohibit setting the voltage and 
always fail on attempt to set voltage of a coupled regulator. Or we can just 
ignore it and set voltage of the regulator without checking the unregistered ones.
