I've seen this as well. The only relevant change I can see is that
power_init is run earlier now, before mpeg_init. mpeg_init does various
hardware setup stuff, but I don't know if it touches anything used by the
power management code (to read the voltage). Seems to be the case though.
Either that, or power_init is simply run to early.
