I think I've fixed this one.  Apparently kobject notification has
changed behaviour in the case where the /sys paths that frameworkd
watches are symbolic links.  When the Python-level notification
callback is called, the path given is a canonical link, not the
original symbolic link path.

The change at
addresses this, and makes battery reporting work again for me.

Can anyone comment on whether this analysis and fix are correct?
