Subject[RFC] [Patch] Sony APM battery status fix
The following change to the apm_get_power_status function makes my Sony
Vaio SR7K report sane battery life expectations. From surfing the web, I
believe this problem happens on other recent Sony laptops (outside of the
SR series). I'm thinking about making this fix run-time selectable via a
sysctl so that is can be pre-compiled-kernel friendly... Comments?
