Nope, it's not useless. I.e. for `cat /sys/class/power_supply/*/*`.
Actually, it was only the purpose for caching the battery values.
So, 1 second is OK.

p.s. Lars, on the next resend, can you please remove "POWER:"
prefix from the patch description line, bound the commit message
width to 76 symbols, and add all the collected Acked-by lines.
That way I can just pull your tree.

Thanks!
