Normally I'd expect a battery charger to be exposed via the power supply
API - I'd at least expect to see a consumer in the power supply API
which manages the charger and given the amount of automation you usually
see in chargers integrated into PMICs (things like automatically
starting and stopping themselves) it's not entirely clear that they map
on that well to the regulator API.
