I always include ACPI with all options including battery
when I compile a kernel,
but for some reason I have never worked out
some kernels give a /proc/acpi/battery entry, and others don't.
What is the reason for this?

OI've compiled the latest kernel with the ACPI debug option,
so hopefully I should learn soon if nobody tells me.)
