it seems that the fix for ACPI SCI handling broke some machines that
were working before. The jmcneill-pm branch has a change that it
should fix all cases, but it is aggressive and might break older machines.
Please test http://www.netbsd.org/~joerg/netbsd-i386 or
http://www.netbsd.org/~joerg/netbsd-amd64 (depending on your
architecture). The kernel should boot without issues. Power down should
still work with it. "vmstat -i" on the command line (or "show event" in
ddb) should not show any interrupt storms.
I am especially interested in reports from systems without IOAPIC.
