Subject[PATCH v4 1/2] power_supply: Add more charge types and CHARGE_CONTROL_* properties
Date
Add "Standard", "Adaptive", and "Custom" modes to the charge_type
property, to expand the existing "Trickle" and "Fast" modes.
In addition, add POWER_SUPPLY_PROP_CHARGE_CONTROL_START_THRESHOLD
and POWER_SUPPLY_PROP_CHARGE_CONTROL_END_THRESHOLD properties, to expand
the existing CHARGE_CONTROL_* properties. I am adding them in order
to support a new Chrome OS device, but these properties should be
general enough that they can be used on other devices.

The meaning of "Standard" is obvious, but "Adaptive" and "Custom" are
more tricky: "Adaptive" means that the charge controller uses some
custom algorithm to change the charge type automatically, with no
configuration needed. "Custom" means that the charge controller uses the
POWER_SUPPLY_PROP_CHARGE_CONTROL_* properties as configuration for some
other algorithm. For example, in the use case that I am supporting,
this means the battery begins charging when the percentage
level drops below POWER_SUPPLY_PROP_CHARGE_CONTROL_START_THRESHOLD and
charging ceases when the percentage level goes above
POWER_SUPPLY_PROP_CHARGE_CONTROL_END_THRESHOLD.

v4 changes:
- Add documentation for the new properties, and add documentation for
the the previously missing charge_control_limit and
charge_control_limit_max properties.
