I got this error on the Openphoenux GTA04 phone. It has a DM3730
SoC and a TPS65950 companion. Severe charging problems were already
observed with the 4.4rc1. I do not know if that already was exactly
*this* problem. I have debugged and patched the v4.7 kernel.
How I hit the problem: Just boot an that device and try to charge
via usb.
Should I resubmit the patch with an extended commit message?
