Subject[2.624-rc1 regression] lost battery information
Date
I have lost battery in 2.6.24-rc1. Without CONFIG_ACPI_PROCFS I have 
no /proc/acpi/battery and cannot test netlink interface because right now
there is no consumer of this.

With CONFIG_ACPI_PROCFS I get

{pts/1}% LC_ALL=C ll /proc/acpi/battery/BAT1
total 0
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Oct 26 20:18 alarm

BAT2 is correct - it is not present. BAT1 is lying. There is nothing in dmesg.
battery is loaded (obviously)

ACPI related stuff from dmesg:

As for the case without ACPI_PROCFS ... well, I do not have it in /proc -
which is expected - but neither I do have it in /sys. And Kconfig help reads

The deprecated files (and their replacements) include:

/proc/acpi/sleep (/sys/power/state)
/proc/acpi/info (/sys/modules/acpi/parameters/acpica_version)
/proc/acpi/dsdt (/sys/firmware/acpi/tables/DSDT)
/proc/acpi/fadt (/sys/firmware/acpi/tables/FACP)
/proc/acpi/debug_layer (/sys/module/acpi/parameters/debug_layer)
/proc/acpi/debug_level (/sys/module/acpi/parameters/debug_level)

neither does it mention /proc/acpi/battery not do I actually have any battery
information in /sys.

Personally I do not like it (if it is intentional). Leaving only netlink
interface means user has no way to query for actual state. We need something
running all the time and hope, it never loses any event and thus reflects
actual state. But it also means we are not allowed to restart it (whatever it
is) as it will have no way to query for actual state on restart ...
