As David noted, this should actually Just Work (TM) now. Can you break
into a loader prompt with just the forth loader and tell me what "show
hint.acpi.0.rsdp" looks like?

David's diagnosis of this is right- this is more of an informational
message that you don't need to worry about.

It seems that the Forth loader might be doing something sneaky and
replacing the standard common "boot" with a Forth boot that handles
this a lot better. CC'ing dteske@ so they can confirm.

Interesting, I'll look into that... anything interesting/unique about
your setup? r329387 should have addressed one potential cause of this,
but I see you're past that.
