The second argument of the mutex_lock_nested() helper is only
evaluated if CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC is set. Otherwise we
get this build warning for the new regulator_lock_supply
function:

drivers/regulator/core.c: In function 'regulator_lock_supply':
drivers/regulator/core.c:142:6: warning: unused variable 'i' [-Wunused-variable]

To avoid the warning, this patch moves the postincrement outside
of the call mutex_lock_nested(), which is enough to shut up
gcc about it.

We had some discussion about changing mutex_lock_nested to an
inline function, which would make the code do the right thing here,
but in the end decided against it, in order to guarantee that
mutex_lock_nested() does not introduced overhead without
CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC.

The patch that introduced the warning is now in 4.4-rc1, and I think this
patch is still the least ugly workaround we found.
