Sprinkle some printfs into sys/dev/acpica/acpi_smbat.c, in particular
the bst and bif functions. Are they timing out? Where is the time
spent, reading from the EC?

ecpoll is the sleep label in acpi_ec.c for accessing the embedded
controller. The only thing powerd does that is related to acpi is read
the AC line status. So perhaps that hits your ec and it is timing out.
Can you try the powerd from -current? It waits for events from devd
instead of polling the AC line status.
