I previously sent mail about problems I was having with 
a dual core amd64 system using an ASUS A8V deluxe motherboard. 
About 3 weeks ago, it wouldn't work, but with todays -current
it seems to be humming along nicely. 

It doesn't boot the GENERIC.MP kernel, but works fine with a kernel 
config like this one with ACPI.

include "arch/amd64/conf/GENERIC.MP"

options         LOCKDEBUG
options         MPDEBUG
options         MPVERBOSE
#options        DEBUG

options         MPACPI          # configure CPUs and APICs using ACPI
acpi0           at mainbus?
# ACPI devices
acpiacad*       at acpi?                # ACPI AC Adapter
acpibat*        at acpi?                # ACPI Battery

After my previous mail about problems, I wanted to send this message so that 
the archives would contain this updated info.
