Actually report the error code from devm_regulator_get() which may as
well just be a probe deferral.

Do you want to know that a probe defer is happening? Usually patches are
sent to make that error path silent.

Just asking as the newbie here, but shouldn't probe deferral be 
regulated to dev_debug?
Then pass any other error code as dev_err.

Yes probe defer should be relegated to debug level prints. Or really, we
should introduce a more complicated system to make debugging probe defer
errors simpler by informing us which driver is probe defering on what
resource by putting debug prints in each framework that returns probe
defer errors instead of updating each driver that uses these frameworks
and thinks it needs to print errors in these cases. And hide all that
behind some kernel commandline parameter and/or Kconfig option that lets
us turn the prints off all the time if we're not developing drivers or
testing things.

Afaict, that is already there in:
drivers/base/dd.c:really_probe()

So I suggest to just silence the EPROBE_DEFER case, e.g.\


	if (IS_ERR(td->vdd_reg)) {
		ret = PTR_ERR(td->vdd_reg);
		if (ret != -EPROBE_DEFER)
			dev_err(td->dev, "couldn't get vdd_cpu regulator: %d\n", ret);

		return ret;
	}

All of it isn't really there when you consider devices may have many
different resources they're trying to get and then tracking down the one
driver that isn't probed and providing the resource fails. Then you get
to resort to hacking prints into the driver to see what particular
resource is probe defering.
