Subject: [PATCH 3/4] regulator: devres: remove devm_regulator_bulk_unregister_supply_alias()
Date: Fri, 25 Jun 2021 15:23:23 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210625122324.327585-4-aardelean@deviqon.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210625122324.327585-1-aardelean@deviqon.com>

This API hook isn't used anywhere and most-likely exists because of the
general principle of C APIs, where if an API function does an
allocation/registration, it must also have an equivalent
deallocation/deregistration counterpart.

For devm_ functions this isn't all that true (for all cases), as the idea
of these function is to provide an auto-cleanup logic on drivers/system
de-init.

Removing this also discourages any weird logic that could be created with
such an API function.
