Provide "uevent" files contents for both the battery driver and
pcf50633-mbc drivers.

Those files are always present in the sysfs, kernel maintains them
automatically for every driver.

Keep in mind that the SoC was constantly running during that test, so
this should be ok. Normal usage assumes you use suspend-to-ram when
you do not actually interact with the device, that should give ~70
(without #1024 fix) or ~140 (with it) hours of "standby time".

No, charging is the same for gta02 battery and the dumb one, it's safe
and doesn't require manual intervention.
