Ok. I think then that aibs just needs updating for your machine perhaps.

This is due to the way new-bus works. When you load a new ACPI driver (like
acpi_aiboost), all ACPI devices that don't have a driver are re-probed (in
case the new driver handles any of those devices). This results in the extra
HPET device being re-probed as well.
