The patch http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/1377608 is intended to cover similar
scenario. It connects different components involved in charging to monitor and control the
charging. This keeps the charging logic outside the charger driver and the charger driver just
need to be a h/w abstraction layer. It doesn't take care of the device tree part. But as long as the
drivers are registered with power supply class, the framework can take actions. Hope this helps.
