Default HID: wiimote: fix invalid power_supply_powers call

BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1048605

== SRU Justification ==

When pairing a wiimote on 12.04, a NULL pointer dereference in the
kernel will occur, preventing the usage of this h/w.

== Fix ==

The problem is that the upstream commit
217c8b2b1978aa4a02ce040a99c59ed3b6418fe5 has been only partially
cherry-picked in Precise by commit
ed326b8c4c653ce643f1cade74cd76c538170b64.

This fix reverts this partial application and cherry-picks the commit
again.

== Test Case ==

This issue can be reproduced by pressing 1+2 on the wiimote and
connecting to the device from gnome-bluetooth. The result will be a
NULL pointer dereference in the kernel.
