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
