   Sure, but a couple of points:

1) This should definitely be adjustable (including enable/disable) from
   userspace such as by sysfs entry.
2) Make sure to put the PMU back into automatic mode before suspend and
3) Consider disabling kernel managed charging restart by default since it
   will shorten battery life and the situation that triggered it has more
   to do with the Neos than with the PMU or the batteries.
