I am well aware of the issue and identified the regression was 
introduced in these changes:

I notified the upstream maintainers and they are working very hard to 
correct the issue ATM.  I'll update ACPICA as soon as they find a fix 
but please revert the changes for now if you are in hurry.

Sorry for the breakage,
