I think we need something to handle misssing data here if there is a
supply connected, otherwise we'll end up failing silently. Off the top
of my head we could either just complain loudly if there's no operation
and there should be one or make a pessimistic assumption about
efficiency by default.

I like the interface for the driver but possibly call it something like
get_supply_current() or something to make it a little clearer which
current is being requested? Also needs to have kerneldoc added for the
new function - ideally the documentation would say this is for sustained
rather than peak load.
