Move another allocation out of regulator_list_mutex-protected region, as
reclaim might want to take the same lock.

WARNING: possible circular locking dependency detected
5.7.13+ #534 Not tainted
------------------------------------------------------
kswapd0/383 is trying to acquire lock:
c0e5d920 (regulator_list_mutex){+.+.}-{3:3}, at: regulator_lock_dependent+0x54/0x2c0

but task is already holding lock:
c0e38518 (fs_reclaim){+.+.}-{0:0}, at: __fs_reclaim_acquire+0x0/0x50

which lock already depends on the new lock.

the existing dependency chain (in reverse order) is:

-> #1 (fs_reclaim){+.+.}-{0:0}:
       fs_reclaim_acquire.part.11+0x40/0x50
       fs_reclaim_acquire+0x24/0x28
       kmem_cache_alloc_trace+0x40/0x1e8
       regulator_register+0x384/0x1630
       devm_regulator_register+0x50/0x84
       reg_fixed_voltage_probe+0x248/0x35c
[...]
other info that might help us debug this:

 Possible unsafe locking scenario:

       CPU0                    CPU1
       ----                    ----
  lock(fs_reclaim);
                               lock(regulator_list_mutex);
                               lock(fs_reclaim);
  lock(regulator_list_mutex);

 *** DEADLOCK ***
[...]
2 locks held by kswapd0/383:
 #0: c0e38518 (fs_reclaim){+.+.}-{0:0}, at: __fs_reclaim_acquire+0x0/0x50

Fixes: 541d052d7215 ("regulator: core: Only support passing enable GPIO descriptors")
[this commit only changes context]
Fixes: f8702f9e4aa7 ("regulator: core: Use ww_mutex for regulators locking")
[this is when the regulator_list_mutex was introduced in reclaim locking path]
