I wonder if it would be a good idea to introduce a 
platform-independent 'acline' sysctl?  Something like 'hw.acline'?  For now 
we could simply have these devices create it.  We could do something fancier 
where AC adapter drivers register with a centralized thingie at some point 
and it exports a global setting that is true so long as at least one adapter 
is online.  I'm not sure that level of complexity is warranted until we have 
platforms with multiple AC lines exposed to the OS though.
