(Update 2008-06-01: There is also a patch that fixes some PCI routing issues on additional machines but needs more testing. Test and report!
We would like to add that all machines with ACPI (laptops, servers, desktops, workstations, etc) need testing.A few minutes ago I re-enabled the new AML parser for ACPI. This parser fixes quite a few issues, including those pesky new HP boxes that were crapping out with the setbufint panic. Also ACPI interrupts in MP on amd64 now work as well (at least on my machines). Even though we think this helps a lot we want to make sure we do not have any regressions. So please check out a new tree and compile a new kernel or download a snapshot and test acpi as much as you can. What would help is to see if the dmesg changes. So take a dmesg with the old and the new kernel and run diff -uNp on it. If anything changes besides a little bit of memory usage please mail me the results with all usual suspects (acpidump, dmesg old, dmesg new). Do not wait on this, we need results now if this is to be included on the next OpenBSD version.
