ACPI / init: Flag use of ACPI and ACPI idioms for power supplies to regulator API
commit 49a12877d2777cadcb838981c3c4f5a424aef310 upstream. There is currently no facility in ACPI to express the hookup of voltage regulators, the expectation is that the regulators that exist in the system will be handled transparently by firmware if they need software control at all. This means that if for some reason the regulator API is enabled on such a system it should assume that any supplies that devices need are provided by the system at all relevant times without any software intervention. Tell the regulator core to make this assumption by calling regulator_has_full_constraints(). Do this as soon as we know we are using ACPI so that the information is available to the regulator core as early as possible. This will cause the regulator core to pretend that there is an always on regulator supplying any supply that is requested but that has not otherwise been mapped which is the behaviour expected on a system with ACPI. Should the ability to specify regulators be added in future revisions of ACPI then once we have support for ACPI mappings in the kernel the same assumptions will apply. It is also likely that systems will default to a mode of operation which does not require any interpretation of these mappings in order to be compatible with existing operating system releases so it should remain safe to make these assumptions even if the mappings exist but are not supported by the kernel.
