Trying this on pandora board (bq27500 over i2c) and it seems there is
something wrong with the cache, I'm always getting the old values. I'm
reading them manually over sysfs, uptime is over 25min but values
still match ones on boot, even after turning off the backlight.

Looking at the code delayed_work handling looks suspicious,
bq27x00_battery_get_property() flushes it and nothing ever reschedules
it. Other than that all new property values looks sane.
