I think the main idea with that patch was that it allows us to take
advantage of build-in device properties, but I think we could actually
improve also it if we had the fwnode handle assigned to the psy. We
would not have to assume the parent has those device properties then.

But ACPI actually defines a specific object called _PCL (power
consumer list) for power source objects that we should one day check
in power_supply_core.c. That's what I meant by ACPI support.

This is not really about ACPI. By using fwnode handle instead of
of_node, we would continue to keep tcpm.c agnostic about the type of
hw description.

So I don't expect any ACPI support to be added to the
power_supply_code.c at this point. You can use to_of_node(cfg->fwnode)
in __power_supply_register() for now:

psy->of_node = cfg->of_node;
if (cfg->fwnode)
psy->of_node = to_of_node(cfg->fwnode);

Thanks,
