Why this user(your case) can't put the charger type get by
"power_supply_get_property()" in its uchger->charger_detect(),
any special reason prevent you doing it? I am not sure if this
case is very common, even if it is, you also can put it in
usb_charger_detect_type()

usb_charger_detect_type()
{
	If can get from power_supply_get_property()
		...
	else if uchger->charger_detect
		uchger->charger_detect();
	...
}

I don't know if most design of usb charger detection now days
is as easy as your PMIC for software(HW does the whole detection
process and prevent the vbus generation until detection has completed),
anyway if your framework can guarantee the detection process finished
before gadget connect, then each user don't have to worry about the
HW detection process details and seek a proper place to do it.
