I don't have anything ready yet and not enough time unfortunately.
The proper way would be to have something equivialent to charger-manager
in the power-supply core. The core should be able to monitor batteries
and handle connected chargers automatically. Also there shouldn't be
any DT entry for the software managing the charger, since DT is about
hardware.
