The pmu_battery module was not built in kernels < 2.32 in Debian.
gnome-power-manager previously used some different methods for battery
detection. So it didn't depend on presence of pmu_battery. IIRC, the
problem started showing up since gnome-power-manager version 2.28. Now
it can not detect battery if the pmu_battery module is not loaded.

Don't ask why - the reason is the same.
