Yes, I have an OMAP3 with the HDQ line connected to a battery with a bq27000
in it. It now works fine.

When I first started working on it I would sometimes get problems with lots
of 0xFF being read, usually with lots of delays.

One problem was that during boot there would often be multiple threads
accessing the battery and tripping over each other.
The third patch of this set fixes that.

The other problem was power saving issues in the OMAP3 drivers. These
we address with lots of help from Paul Walmsley.

You can find my current set of HDQ patches here:

http://neil.brown.name/git?p=gta04;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/hdq

(or git://neil.brown.name/gta04 hdq)

Most of these are from Paul.

Please let me know if they help.
