How will this interact with LEDs that can be used from atomic context?

Sounds like device power management to me. Is it compatible with that?

You only modify set_brigthness_delays, so this will not work at all
for non-blocking LEDs, right?

Could this re-use the workqueue? Many systems will not need
regulators, so this is overhead...

Use "The", and fix double spaces between must and be.

"The"

"Small."

That's quite weird use of enum.

"Regulator".
