I was afraid someone would ask :-).

Yes, we probably need to create battery object in the device tree,
then add properties there.

Actually, I'd like to shutdown at 3.3V or more (like 3.5V), because
going below that is pretty mean to the battery. But if I set threshold
too high, GSM activity will push it below that for a very short while,
and I'll shutdown too soon.

Ideas welcome...
