Please do not harass Robert. He is an Intel developer only and is just
making a courtesy announcement on the FreeBSD forums since we use his code.
Some acpi-ca releases are not suitable for integration (think of them
like FreeBSD-current). They need to be integrated, a patch built and
tested, etc. before even being committed to HEAD. If a FreeBSD
committer is interested in helping us do that process more regularly,
see src/sys/contrib/dev/acpica/acpica_prep.sh for starters. But
remember, you'll often have to implement new kernel APIs to support the
different behavior of new acpi-ca versions. It's not just a matter of
committing the code.
