No regression in 4.19 or -next.

I don't think so, but I'm not 100% sure. Harry, Rex do you know if this is a general issue or was it just fall out from the changes to the interface?

We refactored the interface between the power and display components and this patch fixed up some of that fallout due to the differences in units used in each component.

There are some other dependent patches required that were not flagged in the patch itself. IIRC, they were a bit big for stable.
