So the general idea of the sysfs API seems to require separate devices for the
input (charger) and battery elements. Since what I'm looking at is an
integrated battery controller (bq25896) which has three connections: an USB
power (VBUS), a battery and the system load, but it creates only a single
power-class device. This is complicated by the fact that this is an OTG device
and so it can sink or source VBUS power.
