Hi Nikolaus,

You need the patchset which enables this feature, which was delayed
for further work. It's now ready...

https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9918947/
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9918949/
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9918951/
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9918953/
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9918955/

And flip the #if 0 protecting bq27421_dm_regs

I'd love to support that chip in this patchset if you can test
non-default settings for all 3 options this week?

Thanks,
Liam
