I found if I add ' regulator-always-on ', the regulator core will explicitly enable this GPIO
regulator and cause MAX7322 IO0 to be HIGH and the FEC IO will be 1.8V, since the GPIO regulator
state 1 means 1.8V, but what we want for now is 1.5V, so I think we should NOT add ' regulator-always-on ',
if anyone wants to use 1.8V IO voltage, they can enable this GPIO regulator to get 1.8V. So I think V5 patch set
is just what we want, we want to use the OFF state's voltage (1.5V) of this MAX7322 IO0 GPIO regulator. Thanks.

Anson.
