Good idea ... but not OTG-specific. It doesn't seem to me
that charging hookups belong in that header at all.

In fact, usb_gadget_vbus_draw() might better be implemented
as such a notifier call, removing that configuration mess
from the usb gadget drivers ("how can I know what charger
to use??"). That would be the most common situation: a
peripheral-only device.

And in fact, OTG can be treated as a trivial superset of
peripheral-only USB. (In terms of charger support, only!!)

I'd vote to convert all the USB-to-charger interfaces so
they use notifiers. After fixing the events ... see
comments below. :)

Let's keep charger events separate from anything else,
like "enter host mode" or "enter peripheral mode" (or
even "disconnect"). The audiences for any other types
of event would be entirely different.

Right now there's a mess in terms of charger hookup,
so getting that straight is IMO a priority over any
other type of event. Using events will decouple a
bunch of drivers, and simplify driver configuration.

Those seem like the wrong events. The right events for a charger
would be more along the lines of:

- For peripheral: "you may use N milliAmperes now".
- General: "Don't Charge" (a.k.a. "use 0 mA").

I don't see how "N" would be passed with those events ...

Haven't looked at the details of the charger spec, but
those two events are the *basics* from the USB 2.0 spec,
so "official" charger hardware wouldn't be less capable.

Thing like different levels of VBUS validity, ID grounding,
and so forth ... wouldn't be very relevant. An OTG driver
will do various things, internally, when ID grounds; but
anything else is a function of what role eventually gets
negotiated. And for the charger, they all add up to "Don't
Charge" (since ID grounded means A-role, sourcing power).

A host *might* want to be able to say things like "supply
up to N milliAmperes now", e.g. to let a regulator choose
the most efficient mode.

Why "blocking"? That seems kind of unnatural; for example,
the main users -- like usb_gadget_vbus_draw() -- would be
called in IRQ context (blocking not allowed).
