Currently the regulator API will only constrain individual rails (and shortly likely parent/child relationships). It will not do anything to constrain between different rails, this has been left to the consumers. For this stuff it may still make sense to do that if we've got a set of operating points defined which apply over multiple inputs (like clock and frequency) - we'll naturally impose these constraints by virtue of selecting the operating point. > > + clock constraints (eg. clock x frequency must be a fixed ratio of clock y > > frequency) > Yeah, after sending my email above yesterday I instantly regretted it. > It is true that *functional* clock dependencies are really the purview > of the device driver.
