The problem here has been known since mid august (3 months), I have 3 
different laptops here that all fails in this manner (ASUS, Acer, IBM), 
however they lockup solid on resume which might be why ;)

There are nasties in the bat stuff, I have to comment out various parts 
of it to get the ASUS to boot at all :(

This brings up the question: do we have a maintainer for ACPI and why 
arent these issues being dealt with ? I for one have reported these 
issue for ages including as much debug as is possible, but it seems to 
be silently ignored (and yes 5.3-RELEASE is just as broken)...
