The problem is that I have to boot without ACPI or the system will
randomly reboot itself when doing something. It will sit idle for ages
but if I do a system build (make buildworld for example), it usually
will not make it through without rebooting. If I boot without ACPI

the kernel has SMP option built in).
I would really like to run with all 4 cores but cannot run with ACPI at
the moment due to instability.
Any suggestions? Any way to get "old-style" SMP detection working (ie,
Maybe not, I think ACPI is required by the amd64 spec.
Note that this may well be hardware related: without acpi you are only
using one CPU, etc, so if one of the others is bad it will only fail
when you have ACPI enabled -- even if ACPI itself is not to blame.
