That just mean kernel broke interface _again_. As battery plugin isn't
really maintained nowadays and we still ship the sysfs patch, I really
can't see this fixed anytime soon. We might have some chance if/when the
plugin is ported to xfpm/upower framework, but for now I don't think
there's a fix.

If you can provide such a patch, I guess that could be done.
