Regulator Driver Interface¶
The regulator driver interface is relatively simple and designed to allow regulator drivers to register their services with the core framework.
Drivers can register a regulator by calling:
struct regulator_dev *regulator_register(struct regulator_desc *regulator_desc, const struct regulator_config *config);
This will register the regulator's capabilities and operations to the regulator core.
Regulators can be unregistered by calling:
void regulator_unregister(struct regulator_dev *rdev);
Regulators can send events (e.g. overtemperature, undervoltage, etc) to consumer drivers by calling:
int regulator_notifier_call_chain(struct regulator_dev *rdev, unsigned long event, void *data);
