Currently there is no way to reset the flag. i.e EC does not expose a
console command to reset the flag once set. So I intend to accept only
true bool flag. Is there a better way to do this ?

Currently EC does not expose a host command to read the status.
Maintaining the state in the kernel might not work as the state can go
out of sync. For example, when AC is plugged in, EC resets the flag
and the kernel will not be aware of it.
