   FYI, the increase from 15 to 31 in acpi_timer.c was needed for me to
   have my kernel boot with acpi loaded (ie no hang during boot).
   Anyway, my system died after 2 hours or so of use, after a bunch of:

   Feb 25 18:05:34 ogoun kernel: ACPI-0954: *** Error: AcpiEvGpeDispatch: Unable to
    queue handler for GPE[0], disabling event
   Feb 25 18:05:35 ogoun kernel: -0185: *** Error: UtAllocate: Could not allocate size 
   Feb 25 18:05:35 ogoun kernel: ACPI-0188: *** Error: ExAllocateNameString: Could not 
allocate size 24

   I have no debug information, but I can provide some if needed.
   BTW, it's the first time I see this with ACPI, I had no problem
   before with it. I was even able to suspend / resume my laptop
   (Toshiba Tecra 8000), which seems not everyone's case :)
