The DT binding document isn't very clear on this topic (and should be
fixed): What is this regulator intended to control? If this regulator
solely controls the supply to the hotplug detection circuit, this change
makes sense. If the regulator mainly supplies something else (e.g. part
of the HDMI core on the Tegra chip), then perhaps this change isn't
correct. The correct approach might be to introduce another (optional)
regulator specifically for the hotplug circuit. Presumably both DT
properties vdd-supply and hotplug-supply could point at the same
regulator if that's the way the HW was wired up.
