I'm going to holidays starting in August, and this fix doesn't seem to
be too easy to implement. I'm starting to think that we'll have to use
a common framework to handle events in the kernel to notify the drivers
about what properties are available.

For now I've disabled the shutdown call in sensor_battery. I still have
to think how to fix these problems properly...
