Commit 9f01cd4a915e1 ("regulator: core: introduce function to lock
regulators and its supplies") introduced a pair of new functions
that are marked static but so far not used, which causes annoying
but harmless compiler warnings:

drivers/regulator/core.c:139:13: warning: 'regulator_lock_supply' defined but not used [-Wunused-function]
 static void regulator_lock_supply(struct regulator_dev *rdev)

The best way to avoid these would be to add the code that will
use these functions. If that still takes a while, this patch
at least shuts up the compiler by marking the functions
as __maybe_unused. The same could be achieved by marking them
as static inline or non-static, or by hiding them from the
compiler, but those seemed less appropriate.
