Of course, after posting the above, I updated my sources and tried
again... and for now it seems to work again!

So something that was changed in the last 4 weeks or so made it work
again. (I can't say that it must have been broken in january or so,
since the older working kerneld didn't contain all ACPI things that it

But looking at recently changed acpi_*.c files the following commit
sticks out:

Do not disable interrupts at machine-level in the MI idle-loop entry.

since "freezing" looks a lot like "interrupts disabled".

If I had too much free time on my hands, I'd revert sources to around
the time the interrupt disabling was introduced (rev. 1.133) and check
if that broke it...
