Thanks for Cc'ing and for the review, Jean.

Hwmon feels like a good idea. But no, drivers should not bother
with registering hwmon classes. Instead, some day we might want to
create power_supply_hwmon.c interface (like _sysfs.c that we have
already), the interface would register all needed stuff. And all
drivers will benefit right away without any modifications.
