It is on the board.

Well, that is a little difficult to control, but here we have only
one standard Pandora cell. There may exist replacements with different
capacity, but that should not be our problem...

Yes.

Hm. IMHO the DT should describe what the battery has and the driver should simply ignore
values it can't handle or reject them but do the best out of it. Telling the driver to ignore
a value by setting to 0 would IMHO be the wrong approach.

We are also working on the generic-adc-battery driver that makes use of the same battery DT
node so that people can choose if they want to configure a kernel for fuel gauge or
g-a-b or even both.

This was the value after first boot with the new driver enabled.

A second boot after removing and reinserting battery shows:

[ 11.256713] bq27xxx_battery_setup
[ 11.256744] bq27xxx_battery_setup: dm_regs=bf05b0e0

Yes I know. Up to now the bq27500 has been programmed during production test
by some special flashing tool. Now as the kernel driver has this capability,
we should make (optionally) use of it.

I mainly had some initial doubts that it did not tell something like
"update design-capacity" to 4000 or "design-capacity has 4000"

Ah, I see:

/* assume design energy & capacity are in same block */

This means the bq27500 never programs capacity because we can't specify energy.
So I't suggest to revise this rule and coupling of energy and capacity setting.

Imho, DT can and should describe all properties of the standard OpenPandora
battery (and not missing registers of the bq27500).

Using this information or not should be defined by different defconfigs.

Anyways I have now collected my patches into a patch set for further
review and cherry-picking.

BR,
Nikolaus
