I've update the patch based on some comments so far and added wmpm
(actually ACPI support for wmapm which is utility for WindowMaker)
ports files as a example.
Note that ioctl number for power device have been changed, so rebuilding
your kernel and recompiling lib/libpower/ and usr.sbin/power/ are needed.
Added API is;
I'll get device major number for /dev/power and commit them within a
few days if no objection.
