Right now there is no documentation for the generic psy class. The stuff in
sysfs-class-power is device specific property information, and the same goes for
sysfs-class-power-twl4030. The property usage can vary depending on driver
implementation, an example being the 'online' property which can differ between
drivers, so the usage I have here is very much tcpm related. Also, the ability
to write to certain properties varies depending on the driver and HW, so here
where we configure 'voltage_now' and 'current_now', the likelihood is that most
other psy driver implementations won't allow for this.

Sebastian, do you have any thoughts on this discussion? Would be useful to get
your input here.

Right now I've used the psy class to represent power information from the
external PD source supply, so for the scenarios where we're the source or a
non-PD device has been attached then this is not going to provide any
information to user-space. I guess in the future we could update to represent
information when we're the PD source as well, although that'll likely be all
just read-only info. Right now, not sure if this is something that would be
useful.

Sebastian, do you seen any problems on the dependency front?
