I've updated my github branch with a commit where both of these issues
should be fixed. Can you give it a try?

I've also removed the supports_usb_power_delivery and id_header_vdo
attributes from partners and cables. We really have to put all the USB
PD specific attributes to its own group, and that group can't be in
control of this class. We will simply not always have access to the
kind of USB PD specific details you want to show, for example details
that you get from discover identity command, even when USB PD is fully
supported. For example on systems that use UCSI.

The alternate mode VDO is the only that we can for fairly certainly
always get, and the only things purely tied to USB PD (the plugs are
also, but the only purpose for them is to expose the alternate modes
they have).

Man, I was always against coupling this thing too tightly with USB PD.
I'm slipping.


Thanks,
