The bit in the  is a time stamp since the kernel started. Unless I
screwed the calculation, looks like your system has been up for over
202 days, 17 hours, 38 minutes and 34 seconds (give or take a
little) ... right?

Just means that something asked for or went looking for the ACPI "ec"
object but your BIOS doesn't implement it. It's a benign warning but
tracking it down could be tricky and I have nfi what the "ec" object
is supposed to do (google is your friend). Unless you are having
problems with ACPI events, I'd just ignore it :)
