You mean how to model a battery? It would just be a 'regulator'
because the regulator binding covers any supply really.

Then you just set both rails to the same supply phandle.

Regulators are ref counted, so just enable it twice. Or the driver can
just ignore it until it supports battery backup.

There must be some. But then the battery and charger bindings are not
in the best shape.

Then what is the 2nd "Timepulse"?

Maybe just a "pin name: X" prefix so it is clear.

Yes, I think that's good.

Though with the enable-gpios I was debating the name for sirfstar a
bit because it isn't the normal drive it active to enable, but rather
a pulse to enable or disable.
