AFAIK, only one battery is supported. Your setup shows BAT1, which would
correspond to the second battery. The first battery should be BAT0.
Applying the acpi patches to 2.4.21 you should get BAT0. Try 2.4.21 with
patches to see if the nomenclature for batteries changed from
2.4.21-patched to 2.4.22-pre8.
