I'll just remove most printks before next merge attempt, I guess.

Well, with heavy ifdefs into sharpsl_pm, it can correctly sense
AC/battery. Voltmeters seem to return *some* values. Temperature is
probably okay, battery level is *extremely* noisy, and outside range
where sharp code expects it, but seems to correlate with actual
battery levels.

Now... something does charge my battery, but it is definitely not my
code. I don't dare enabling charging yet.

(More detailed reply will come later today, when I'm close to collie).

Original sharp code does some magic between TS and battery reading. It
seems AD0 is used by both, or something similary ugly. I'll have to
decipher sharp code and figure out how to do it properly.

I thought about it, and considered it quite ugly. Result would be all
data on the platform bus with half-empty device on ucb1x00 "bus". It
would bring me some problems with registering order: if platform
device is registered too soon, ucb will be NULL and it will crash and
burn. OTOH I already have static *ucb, so it is doable, and I can do
it if you prefer it that way...
Thanks, Sharp!
