Node structure is commited to the repository. Can't do much more until the AVR is spitting power data at me, unless the gumstix can feed ACPI data to Linux. I'll investigate that when I can get hands-on with the hardware.

Pretty sure gumstix/ARM doesn't have acpi. that's an x86 thing.

Check with abe, the board has a custom solution (as all embedded boards do) to do this. We have a current sense chip and we should also have a voltage sense via ADC or something....
