Basically yes.

Yes, it works! I have not even played with the wlan_en regulator voltage.

Indeed we can. That is great.

Now the question is how to handle the dependency on your patch.
Somehow we must ensure that it is merged before my $subject patch.
Even if someone decides to backport this to stable.

BR and thanks,
