Upgraded BIOS to 217
Upgraded kernel to 3.11-rc6

Screen brightness keys work, battery is still behaving like before.
Looking at the battery indicator on the laptop; When things are not working, i.e the battery is not being charged, the indicator blinks green and red when the cable is plugged in. This happens even after powering off the computer and plugging the cable in and out.

I'm interested in those BIOS settings, even though they might break something. As of now this issue is rendering this laptop unusable/unreliable as a portable device.
