Are you using the latest batman.fth? I pulled a lot of batman
functionality into the firmware and had to modify batman.fth to avoid
the errors above.
Originally, I only pulled in some key diagnostics but then in later
firmwares I needed the formatting functions too so its a bit of a mismash.

1w-init should not be used anymore. Rather you do a 'batman-start'
New firmware suspends only the battery interface and leaves the keyboard
active. 'batman-stop' will resume normal operation.
