I'd like to get the attached frameworkd patch upstream, if people
think it is correct.  But it occurs to me that I don't recall hearing
this problem being reported by SHR users - and so I'm wondering if
that might mean that the patch isn't right for SHR.

Is the current SHR kernel significantly different (older?) from Timo's
no-debug kernel at the location above?  In particular, can anyone pin
down whether it contains the same (apparent) sysfs change as described
above?  (I'm afraid I haven't yet managed to find that change in the
andy-tracking git log.)

Alternatively, does SHR do battery status reporting in some completely
different way, which would be unaffected by this patch?

Thanks in advance for any enlightenment...
