Battery not working - Invalid DSDT

Since my last upgrade to Ubuntu 7.10, the Gnome battery monitor stopped working properly and displayed as if it were always powered on. Surfing the web I found out that this is a problem of the buggy DSDT that Acer ships with their BIOS.

The following is a link that can be the starting point to create a correct DSDT:

I will continue logging in this blog any progress done.
