[RFC] power: supply: bq27xxx_battery: Fix polling interval after re-bind

From: Krzysztof Kozlowski
Date: Mon May 25 2020 - 07:32:29 EST

This reverts commit 8cfaaa811894a3ae2d7360a15a6cfccff3ebc7db.

If device was unbound and bound, the polling interval would be set to 0.
This is both unexpected and messes up with other bq27xxx devices (if
more than one battery device is used).

This reset of polling interval was added in commit 8cfaaa811894
("bq27x00_battery: Fix OOPS caused by unregistring bq27x00 driver")
stating that power_supply_unregister() calls get_property(). However in
Linux kernel v3.1 and newer, such call trace does not exist.
Unregistering power supply does not call get_property() on unregistered
power supply.

I really could not identify the issue being fixed in offending commit
8cfaaa811894 ("bq27x00_battery: Fix OOPS caused by unregistring bq27x00
driver"), therefore maybe I missed here something important.

Please share your thoughts on this.
