Some regulators can run on different operating modes (opmodes). This
allows systems to choose the most efficient opmode for each regulator.

This patch adds a "regulator-initial-mode" property to configure at
startup the operating mode for the regulators that support changing
its mode during normal operation and a "regulator-mode" to be used as
a property of the suspend states "regulator-state-[mem/disk]" nodes
for the regulators that supports changing its operating mode when the
system enters in a suspend state.

The set of possible modes that a regulator can operate depends on
the hardware capabilities so a list of generic operating modes can't
be provided. Instead, each hardware should define the list of valid
operating modes for the regulators found on that device.
