Dying battery

The workaround is imperfect apparently.  I also dont think 2008.8/9/12
has it as I only saw framework based distros doing it.

Perhaps someone could confirm that 2008.12 has the workaround - or not?

Also, events/0 runaway can cause a battery to drain very quickly.  I am
also suspecting gsm of excessive current after being used and turned off
in 2008.12.
