Bug Description

Ubuntu/Kubuntu missing power management on laptop with bay Trail or cherry trail.
Tested on HP X2 Detachable model 10-p028nl CPU x5-83xx on Ubuntu 16.04 and Kubuntu 18.04 the battery icon doesn't show info about remaining power. Tried kernel 4.15.x and 4.20.3 no success.

upower -d doesn't show the battery.

It works correctly on Fedora 29 kernel 4.18.x It could be some patches missing on APX20x, APX288 module. After other searches it could be some kernel configuration option
