I don't like it much either. The only reason that requirement exists is
because it makes the assignment of the regulator ID (as defined in the
include/linux/mfd/tps6586x.h header) very trivial. Would it be better to
look up the ID based on the node name (sm0 --> TPS6586X_ID_SM_0, ...)?

Then the only requirement would be that the names match.
