My issue with the AC adaptor status not being detected correctly turns out to
be a little broader that I first though. I put a few printfs in acpi_acad.c
and noticed that acpiacad_notify_handler was never called. Hence, the flag
AACAD_F_AVAILABLE does not get set so the adaptor status changes will not be
noticed. (If I make the call to acpiacad_get_status in acpiacad_refresh
unconditional, envstat detects the status changes correctly.)
It actually looks like no acpi notify method gets called. A printf in
acpibat_notify_handler shows that it does not get called when the battery is
removed. My power button is also non-operational (acpibut_notify_handler?).
I'll be happy to help track this down but I need a pointer to where to look
