but that's something not described in the device tree right now. FYI,
the AXP221s and AXP221 differ slightly in that one has increased current
capability for one or two of the DC-DCs. We treat them as if they were
the same right now.

It is. However, we currently lack a "standalone operating mode" property.
This is different from "master mode".
