This regulator is inside an MFD and it only feeds a very limited number of
devices within that MFD.  So I don't think there is much room for confusion.

However is it a somewhat indirect method of signalling.  I want the charger
to be able to tell the USB controller that it is using the PHY so please
don't turn it off.  Doing that through the regulator seems simple and
effective.
Maybe there is a better way, but it isn't immediately clear what that would
be.
Suggestions welcome.

Thanks,
NeilBrown
