Well, after continuing to smack my head firmly against this laptop over and 
over again with 4.8-STABLE I've decided to give 5.1 a shot.  Base install is 
done, and now working in getting it all upgraded.

Folks weren't joking when they were saying ACPI is broken.  Seemed like the 
entire boot process was a string of ACPI error messages.

Kevin, thanks for the config files.  In looking these over it's quite apparent 
that they'll be extremely helpful as I go about tweaking this box into play.  
I hadn't noticed how much of LINT I had stuck in my memory for 4.8 until 
seeing all those odd looking new options for 5.

Going to try getting RELEASE to play nice here, and failing that I'll just 
move this box on up to CURRENT.  Taking this user on a trip over the bleeding 
edge! :)

Once I get a little play time behind me on this I'll get a follow up post on 
how things went.
