Hi

The following patch should hopefully fix the issue.

Subject: [PATCH] Initialize power_supply changed_work before calling device_add

Calling device_add causes a uevent for that device to be generated.
The power_supply uevent function calls the drivers get_property function,
which might causes the driver to update its state, which again might causes
the driver to call power_supply_changed(). Since the power_supplys
changed_work has not been initialized at this point the behavior is
undefined and might result in a OOPS.

This patch fixes the issue by initializing the power_supplys changed_work
prior to adding the power_supplys device to the device tree.
