Hi Felipe,

need to be fixed as below:
1. Need to add the method getting charger type from extcon subsystem.
2. Need to remove the method getting charger type from power supply.
3. There are still some different views about reporting the maximum
current or minimum current to power driver.

Now the current v16 patchset can work well on my Spreadtrum platform
and Jun's NXP platform, if you like to apply this patchset then I can
send out new patches to fix above issues. If you don't like that, I
can send out new version patchset to fix above issues. Could you give
me some suggestions what should I do next step? Thanks.
