That might not be a wise option. Allowing random values can have
unintended effects. For example consider what would happen if write
random values to EC today. Any flag value other than
EC_BATTERY_CUTOFF_FLAG_AT_SHUTDOWN will cause the battery to cutoff
immediately before the system shutdowns.
In future, if EC exposes more attributes, it will not be that
difficult to add support here.

Also, if clearing the flag is not supported, I would expect an attempt to do so to return an error. There should also be an explanation in the code explaining why the attribute is write-only.
