There was some discussion at some point if the Freerunner can be in host
mode without providing power _while_ charging from outside 5V (for some
special applications like robotics, obviously with special non-standard
cabling arrangements), but I don't know if that ended up with an answer.
Will only changing the usb_mode accomplish this?
