I did some work in the mean time, 6.1-BETA3 installed and works with ACPI. 
System updated to 6.1-PRERELEASE (I think) and works well.
With one brute hack even 7.0-CURRENT works with ACPI - original error, panic: 
acpi_pci_update_device: deleting alive child acpi_sysresource1 can be removed 
by commenting first part of acpi_pci_update_device function in 
dev/acpica/acpi_pci.c file - code conditionally evaluated when child != NULL.
After commenting it out system boots with ACPI and works.
I would like to get some hints on what to look for, so I can at least 
understand why this code fails, what should it be doing. I have no knowledge 
on ACPI code, so any hint is appreciated.
