Very well, time to start debugging, then.  Please add just tp_smapi
(*without* hdaps!) as a module.  For added safety, you can load it manually
instead of automatically.  Please play with it a bit, use it to set ThinkPad
parameters, read all parameters in the Battery, loop for a while doing
back-to-back dumps.  Do this with a tail -f /var/log/kern.log (or whatever
is needed in your distribution to see the kernel error messages), and stop
as soon as any error messages show up.

I have no idea what these are. I will check a bit more...

... but whatever it is, has something to do with the keyboard (which is also
handled by the embedded controller) and the input layer.
