Actually the charger detection is not belonging to the charger
subsystem, at least in the hardware design level. The charger
detection's theory is detetcing the USB phy D+/D- line to get the
charger type, then the hardware will save the charger type into the
PMIC global reigsters automatically for users to get. So this is not
related with the charger driver, which only supplies charging
services, and this is also not belonging to the USB phy, since the
related registers are located on the PMIC gloabl registers area. So
you still think we should not provide this funcion here?
