powerline vim, NameError, invalid expression error on the latest update.

I have vim with pathogen and on the latest update of the powerline.vim, everything broke.

It turns out that my old default config files are incompatible with the new version of powerline. See GitHub issue.

When I ran vim with --cmd 'let g:powerline_config_overrides={"common":{"log_file":"/tmp/powerline.log"}}' as suggested, a bunch of config mapping errors showed up:

The quickest solution is to take the new default config files and dump them in your ~/.config/powerline directory.
