More handling can be added for some cases. With this patch the
poweron bits will clear to defaults if power is completely removed.
So start-up with VBUS and CHG works in that case.

However, if you have a battery connected, and you poweroff, with
this patch the device won't power up with VBUS or CHG connected.

Note that most battery operated devices are not using the charger
on twl4030 because it has issues charging a completely empty
battery AFAIK. So most battery powered devices have been using an
external USB charger chip that's not affected by this patch.

We could consider exporting a function for the charger driver to
configure the poweron mask. And we could also consider passing a
mask in ti,use_poweroff = 0xff.

There's a patch series for "[RFC,01/16] kernel: Add support for
poweroff handler call chain" that should help with that. For sure
the poweroff handling needs to be board specific as some systems
may need to use a GPIO to shut off a regulator powering something
before powering off the SoC.
