I'm wondering how the I2C versions will be effected by this change, will
we get the right byte when we only read one? Maybe the fix should be
to still read 2-bytes but mask out the right bits from the result? The
data-sheet doesn't seem clear on this.

Well, it is more right than it was before, I'll look for a bq27200 to
test and make changes if needed some other time, but for now:
