Right I saw this in your git repo, but I cannot reproduce the issue (1)
I was hoping that since you can reproduce this, that you can rebase
your fix on top of my patch-set ?

Also I'm wondering if this behavior should be the default, I believe
that the max. boost current may also be dependent on some external
factors, so maybe we should make this behavior conditional on a
new device-property ?



1) I must admit I did not try really hard, I guess I could try an
USB powered hdd enclosure with a spinning disk

What device are you seeing this with?
