acpi.4 is missing a line in the area describing acpi features which may
be disabled. I am including a patch in the fix section to fix this. The
video device may be disabled with debug.acpi.disabled, and in the case
of my laptop (dell inspiron 1100) is necessary for agp0 to be detected,
since there seems to be a conflict between acpi_video0 and agp0.
Since acpi_video0 won't do fullscreen X11 display on this box and
probably several more, acpi video must be disabled to take advantage
of the agp goodness.
This is my first send-pr, forgive me if i mucked something up
