I'm running -CURRENT on a Dell Vostro 2510.  Battery reporting is not
working.  When hal polls the sysctls for ACAD and battery stats, the
following errors spew out on the console:

ACPI Exception (evregion-0529): AE_NO_HARDWARE_RESPONSE, Returned by
Handler for [EmbeddedControl] [20070320]
ACPI Error (psparse-0626): Method parse/execution failed [\
acpi_ec0: EcRead: failed waiting to get data

Here is the dmesg from the laptop:

And here is the ASL dump:

Any ACPI experts who might have a clue as how to correct this.  I am
already running the latest BIOS, and I do not see any BIOS settings
which might help.  Thanks.
