I don't like that.  Plenty of machines were manufactured with APM and no
ACPI, or APM and broken ACPI, and some of those machines are still in
use.  I think we should try to support them.

I haven't actually used APM recently, but I build my kernels with

	apm* at mainbus0
	apm* at acpi?

As somebody else mentioned, a "disabled" keyword in the config(5) syntax
would be nice.  Then we could build kernels with

	apm* at mainbus0 disabled
	apm* at acpi?

and enable apm at mainbus via userconf(4).
