I've just updated the ACPI CA components to the latest Intel release.
You can read the release notes on Intel's website 

In addition, I've changed the default ACPI initialisation to the full,
recommended-by-the-standard set of passes over the namespace.

This has the potential to cause problems on some systems.  If you are
already using the debug.acpi.avoid sysctl, you will get the old 
behaviour (since the avoid mechanism does not affect some parts of
the namespace initialisation).  If the latest code locks up during device
probes, try

ok set debug.acpi.avoid=""

at the loader prompt.

Outstanding issues:

 - The ACPI timecounter does not work on some ALi chipsets.
 - ACPI mode results in some PCI devices not being configured
   by the BIOS.
