Subject: Bisected regression from 3.17 still present in 3.19-rc1

The laptop is a 2-year-old macbook Pro with retina display.

I use a dockapp called wmlaptop2 (
which, among other things, displays battery information (% of charge
remaining etc).

With the kernel v3.17 the battery information stopped working and it
still does not work in the latest v3.19-rc1.

Looking at what wmlaptop2 does I noticed that one entry inside
/sys/class/power_supply is not present in a bad kernel.

In a good kernel:

[mafra@...ux-g29b:~]$ ls /sys/class/power_supply/
ADP1@  BAT0@

but in v3.17 onwards there's no BAT0@ entry:

[mafra@...ux-g29b:~]$ ls /sys/class/power_supply/

I bisected the problem to this commit:

commit 7bc5a2bad0b8d9d1ac9f7b8b33150e4ddf197334
Author: Matthew Garrett <>
Date:   Sat Sep 20 13:19:47 2014 +0200

    ACPI: Support _OSI("Darwin") correctly

Is there anything else I can do to help fixing this?

PS: the bisect log:
