the usb core relies in two flags that need too be set properly, one is the
over-current indicator RH_PS_POCI , and the other is the over current
indicator "change" (RH_PS_OCIC).

The idea was to use the notification to set the over current indicator
"change" flag,
which will happen for both rising and falling edges. And to use
get_status or get_mode
to set the over-current indicator flag which should reflect the actual
pin status.
