I am porting from Linux code that use "/sys/class/power_supply/type"
and can tell "Mains", "UPS", or "Battery". It would be nice if FreeBSD
had something similar :-)

>From ACPI manual it seems that "hw.acpi.acline" shoud do the job, but
this OID is not available on desktops.. and this is not noted anywhere
that "hw.acpi.acline" is only available on a laptops.. so I am not
sure if my code should depend on this OID and if this is a bug?

Thanks! :-)
