Comment(by erikos):

 So in the control panel we displayed the power icon if the machine is an
 XO (we asumed that if '/ofw' is present that would be the case), with the
 1.75 this fails. We have several options:

 * make another check based on '/ofw' and '/proc/device-tree' (maybe if
 'mfg-data/SN' is present we can say it is an XO)

 * do get the xo version ('/proc/device-tree/banner-
 name','/sys/class/dmi/id/product_version', '/ofw/banner-name' ) and
 determine that way it is an XO

 probably more long term:

 * maybe the power extension should be an olpc package and the upstream
 code should be removed

 * make the section more generic (whatever that exactly looks like)
