I've read that you're supposed to do such a thing with new batteries out of the wrapper, ie: fully charge/discharge several times. But I've not seen anything about doing that after the battery has been in service for a while. I've not seen anything for linux except apmiser, which is something to conserve battery power while it's in use.
