I left the naming in accordance with the device datasheet. I thought it would be
better since the driver user would still need to consult with the device
documentation to properly set them. I don't really get how the difference is reflected
with the naming declared there though. So what naming would you prefer then? Might be
something like:
{sp,bp}-max-total-current - for so named {sp,bp}-max-power, since it includes all the
permanently attached peripherals.
{sp,bp}-max-removable-current - for so named {sp,bp}-max-current, since it doesn't
include the permanently attached peripherals.

Or is it better to leave it in compliance with the documentation naming?

What this line means then?
- sp-max-{power,current} : ... The value is given in mA in a 0 - 100 range (default is 1mA).
- bp-max-{power,current} : ... The value is given in mA in a 0 - 510 range (default is 100mA).

Maybe I don't know something and the description line should state the units somehow
clearer?
