JFYI: with the latest git master the ACPI batteries in sysfs (in the 
power_supply subsystem) should basicly work again. 

We have to see if we need to change also the other power_supply batteries to 
get polled. The time will show if there are other bugs in the code, or if 
there are uncovered cornercases as in the ACPI proc related code.
