Is there any way for the audit module to get the battery serial number from ACPI?

We have lots of thinkpads and batteries... sure would be nice to be able to easily get their serial numbers to see if they've been recalled. Other brands of laptops have had recalls too.

Lenovo's method is a 2MB EXE that runs an installer and must be uninstalled later (stupid!)

This would be a very useful feature! We recently dealt with the Dell Recall and I had to manually check about 45 laptops. I know there are companies out there much bigger then mine that have hundreds of laptops out there. This would be a great tool.

After a quick look, it doesn't seem possible right now, but I entered in a feature request for the ability. Can't say it'll be implimented for sure, but we'll surely look into it.
