Package: xfce4-battery-plugin
Version: 1.0.5-3
Severity: important
Tags: patch upstream

Hi folks,

Thanks for doing the changes to recognise new architectures like
arm64. However, there's another bug to fix to fix FTBFS on arm64. The
code in libacpi.c is buggy, and assumes that Linux will always have
sysctl(). sysctl is strongly deprecated according to the man page, and
it seems it is not supported on arm64. That wouldn't be a problem, but
some of the includes in libacpi.c are dependent on HAVE_SYSCTL when
they shouldn't be. A trivial patch to fix that is attached.
