this is actually what the USB Battery Charging spec requires us to
implement. If Linux is doing differently, it's a bug on Linux which
should be fixed :-)

No host is allowed to source more then one unit load (100mA in LS/FS/HS,
150mA in SS) until the device is fully enumerated. Host are also
required to drop max current budget to 8mA (IIRC) if the device doesn't
enumerate for however many minutes (I guess it was a pretty long
threshold, something like half an hour or so. My memory fails me right
now).
