At least I don't have plan to imprement apmctl.There is more appropreate 
way: kqueue. That is undergoing project. Imprementing ome apm-compatible 
interface may be good thing.

health.c will not work because Thermal zone driver has no ioctl 
interface for now.
But there is sysctl interface instead.

User interface of ACPI itself is not so fixed.
