IRQ conflicts on RELEASE 5.2.1: Thinkpad 600x and PCM100

Just a follow up. I got the card working by disabling ACPI, alltogether.
crowd: "I got the card working by disabling ACPI"
sorry - Airplane joke
Seriously, though. After searching some more I realized that the ACPI
was rerouting IRQ requests, and read the FreeBSD page related to ACPI
Disabling ACPI is done by setting the following in /boot/device.hints:
I tried to disable just a subsystem at first by putting
debug.acpi.disable="pci_link" but then the hard drive wasn't found and I
had to set the variable at the boot prompt to get running again.
So, being this is an ACPI problem, I'll work it through
freebsd-acpi at freebsd.org.
I'm not brave enough to use the apm device in lieu of acpi because the
man page says it can destroy batteries if you're not careful.
