I have not seen any netlink code in the BeagleBoard based kernels. So it must
have been something special for the GTA02.

I am not sure if there are any events (except some dmesg) associated.
The status can be polled through /sys. One is the twl4030_bci
(battery charger). The other should be the "musb" (Mentor USB) driver which
controls the USB/OTG part.
If we implement some new notification schemes we should look what
Kernel 3.2, Nokia N900, OpenPandora and other TI OMAP based devices
