this patch try to detect automatically broken batteries which tell that they 
charge a primary (Laptop) battery with more than 50 Wh (50.000 mWh), which is 
IMO in 100% of the cases wrong for Laptop batteries. Maybe we can also assume 
a much lower level as criterion.

To get valid remaining time values this patch set in such cases 
battery.remaining_time.calculate_per_time=true and calculate the remaining 
time based on time and the chargelevel.
