Subject[PATCH v3 00/16] bq27x00: New Properties, fixes, bq27000 support
This patch series contains a few updates for the bq27x00 driver:
* Support for additional power supply properties
* Support for the bq27000 battery which is identical to the bq27200 but is
connected through the HDQ bus.
* Adds a register cache to the driver and introduces polling the batteries state
* Minor improvements and cleanups

The last patch in this series is not specific to the bq27x00 driver but is
required for uevents to be generated properly for this driver.
The patch makes properties which return -ENODATA to be ignored when generating
uevents. Previously in such a case uevent generation would have been aborted
with an error. But since the bq27x00 return -ENODATA for the TIME_TO_FULL
property when the battery is not charging and for the TIME_TO_EMPTY property
when the battery is not discharging and at least one of them is always true
uevent generation would always fail.

This series has so far been tested with the bq27000 and the bq27200 battery,
but not with the bq27500 battery, so it would be nice if somebody with a board
containing such a battery could test the patches to make sure that there are no

Changes since v1:
Don't cache registers for fast changing properties like VOLTAGE_NOW,
CURRENT_NOW, ENERGY_NOW and CHARGE_NOW which can be obtained by reading
only a single register.
These were ignored anyway when comparing two battery states and since
their register is not shared between different properties we gain nothing
by caching them. On the other hand it allows the property to be queried at
a higher rate then the caching time.

Changes since v2:
Two more patches were added to the series:
One fixes a problem triggered by this series in the power_supply core. It
is possible that the power_supply core calls back into the driver without
having its changed_work initialized yet. Which cause an OOPS if the driver
calls power_supply_changed() at this point.
The other patch fixes the i2c read function to use a single i2c transfer to
read a register instead of two transfers. Using two transfers was kind of
racy and caused wrong results to be returned sometimes.

I've also reordered the patches slightly and moved the patches touching the
power_supply core to the beginning of this series to avoid potential problems
when bisecting through this series.

This series is also available at
git:// bq27x00-for-upstream

This should hopefully be the final version of this patchset. Thanks to all
who have helped testing and contributed feedback and fixes.
