Hm, I initially submitted it to power/supply following the c630 driver,
but I think you're right... Though I'm not sure where in platform/ I'd
put this driver... (+CC Hans)

Seems like most of the things live in platform/x86 but there is no i.e.

Hans, (as a maintainer for most things in platform/) what do you think
would be the best place to put this (and at least two more I'd expect)
driver in inside platform/? And can we handle it through the
platform-driver-x86 list?

I was referring to whatever ACPI spec calls "AC Adapter" but I guess
I should have used the word "charger" instead... Will reword this.

Oh, you're right! I think I initially didn't have this property and
added it like this as a reaction to that upower change that made it
consider everything not explicitly present as absent.

I've just checked what is reported after unplugging the battery and
seems like the flag (as well as everything else) is gone. Will change
the driver to read the flag.

Thanks for your review!
