I'm going to have re-do that and qualify the clear with a SOC >10 
conditional. I've realized that clearing the flag unconditionally 
bypasses OFW's check to make sure that the battery is not low prior to 
starting a firmware flash.  A battery that was very low but just plugged 
up to power should still be considered low.
