Yes I ran -current on my 6100 for a while. I also reported the
immediate reset when booting with ACPI enabled. I haven't been able to
further narrow the problem down, and didn't get a reply from the ACPI
folks as well. So I ran with ACPI disabled.
I switched to 4.6R a while ago because I got tired of -current after a
phase of instability. Note that this is not a complaint, it is just that
a released version better fits my needs. I may go back to running
-current when I have more spare time.
