I think RNDIS should be enabled, but i havent tried it for very long time and 
IIRC it worked only with winxp.

If you put the phone to sleep, it should draw like 14mA, so you can charge 
with 86mA.

It's one of the original scripts from Qt Extended/Qtopia. I think the sysfs 
paths have changed since then.

If you try om utility (from omhacks package) it could have parameter for 
enabling fast charge. Then you can edit the "Fast charge mode" script so that 
it uses "om" command (and send the result to me so that i can commit it as 
patch ;-).
