My thinking was this: yes, there is a PMU but describing it has no
benefit (unlike QCA6x90). If we do describe, then we'll end up having
to use pwrseq here despite it not being needed because now we won't be
able to just get regulators from WLAN/BT drivers directly.

So I also vote for keeping it this way. Let's go into the package
detail only if it's required.
