FWIW, I worked around the issue by creating a
/etc/hal/fdi/preprobe/sysfs-battery.fdi file containing the following:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<match key="linux.sysfs_path" prefix="/sys/class/power_supply/">
<merge key="info.ignore" type="bool">true</merge>
This avoids devices in /sys/class/power_supply to be registered in hal.
