This probably breaks dual-battery Thinkpads, that charges batteries
alternating (so one of them is "not charging" without being "fully
charged"). The correct fix is to teach upower the "not charging"
state. It exists since the existance of the power supply kernel API,
so missing support is a bug in UPower.
