In our case we have a series of USB hardware (using the cp210x driver) which
communicates using a proprietary protocol. These devices sometimes trigger an
over-current situation on some hubs. In case of such an over-current situation
the USB devices offer an interface for reducing the max used power.
As these conditions are quite rare and imply performance reductions of the
device we don't want to use reduce the max power always.

With this patch I want to give the user-space application the possibility to
react adequately to such over-current situations.

I hope this explains my motivation for this patch in a comprehensible way.

Would be fine for me.
