Subject: [PATCH] regulator: Documentation fix for regulator error notification helper
Date: Mon, 23 Aug 2021 10:56:51 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210823075651.GA3717293@localhost.localdomain> (raw)

[-- Attachment #1: Type: text/plain, Size: 3241 bytes --]

The helper to send IRQ notification for regulator errors had still
old description mentioning calling BUG() as a last resort when
error status reading has kept failing for more times than a given
threshold.

The impementation calling BUG() did never end-up in-tree but was
replaced by hopefully more sophisticated handler trying to power-off
the system.

Fix the documentation to reflect actual behaviour.
