because the rule is not matching the twl4030-usb at all. But the bci charger. So the charger (where we must set the charging current) does not have an 'id' attribute at all.

So we need an udev rule that matches an attribute of one driver (e.g. id=="floating") and modifies an attribute of another one (e.h. max_current="800mA").

This has changed from 3.12 to 3.14.
