I wrote a patch that adds a scaling factor to the estimated runtime.
With this patch it is possible for users to set the maximum runtime
they get based on experience. This value is then taken to adjust the
runtime display in the info screen and the wps tag (and everywhere
else the function might be used).
I know that this is not _the_ solution for the bad estimate on some
targets, but it doesn't change much code and I think it is even useful
with a well optimised runtime prediction, because users can adjust it
when their battery is getting old.
The patch is located here: http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/7092
Please test it and tell me what you think about it.
