Issue 481: Linear charging is no longer available in 3.11 kernel

Reported by ben deering, Sep 12, 2013

/sys/devices/platform/omap_i2c.1/i2c-1/1-004a/twl4030_bci/l
in

is not available in the 3.11 kernel.  Linear charging is useful for 
strange chargers and as a workaround for other charging issues.

This may just be a matter of merging the commit that added linear 
charging to 3.7.

Yes, it is missing in the code base.

In the neil-plus kernel the patch was applied:

http://git.goldelico.com/?p=gta04-kernel.git;a=history;f=drivers/powe
r/twl4030_charger.c;h=fbd98771cc45d241a4c8b00bcbcb8e2533715cea;hb=ref
s/heads/3.7-neil-plus

During rebase to 3.10/11 it was apparently lost/removed during 
conflict resolution:

http://git.goldelico.com/?p=gta04-kernel.git;a=commit;h=6c910fc6c6683
9a0d88d83174ac06a0e0844e269

So it should be as simple as to reapply (any maybe fix) the commit
