If the PMU registers the "internal" output regulators, then PCI device
would consume the PCI outputs of the PMU, the BT device would consume
the BT outputs of the PMU. The PMU requests inputs enabled and drives
BT_EN and WLAN_EN according to which subset of these output regulators
are enabled.

Pretty much exactly as "regulator-fixes" isn't a pwrseq device.
