Subject: [PATCH 3.13 080/259] ACPI / battery: Retry to get battery information if failed during probing

3.13.11.6 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Lan Tianyu <tianyu.lan@...el.com>

commit 75646e758a0ecbed5024454507d5be5b9ea9dcbf upstream.

Some machines (eg. Lenovo Z480) ECs are not stable during boot up
and causes battery driver fails to be loaded due to failure of getting
battery information from EC sometimes. After several retries, the
operation will work. This patch is to retry to get battery information 5
times if the first try fails.
