Seeing the same thing here, a quick look after booting with the battery
removed shows:
$ cat /proc/pmu/info
PMU driver version     : 2
PMU firmware version   : 11
AC Power               : 0
Battery count          : 1

As you can see, it says that the laptop is not connected to AC. So there
is obviously something wrong here.

After I insert the battery everything works as expected. I am running a
2.6.18-rc2-git1 kernel here.
