ACPI Not Working on F8

I'm running the old F7 kernel kernel-220.127.116.11-91.fc7 on F8 for reasons
that I've explained in another mail. This (as you might expect) is
I noticed that the battery indication monitor had vanished from the
panel. I went to add it back, but I got the error message
Can't access ACPI events in /var/run/acpid.socket! Make sure the
ACPI subsystem is working and the acpid
daemon is running.
And, obviously, the battery indicator isn't working. This is a bit of
a problem as that's what I use to suspend the laptop.
Am I completely wasting my time hoping that the old kernel will work
here? Has the ACPI interface changed between F7 and F8?
If it helps, the laptop is a Philips Freevents X5q (which is actually
a rebadged Twinhead 12D).
