It doesn't. It's the generic "upgrading fixes all" advice.
I don't see anything since 7.1-RELEASE in 7.1-STABLE even, that would have the
potential to fix your problem.
Best thing you can do:
0) Check BIOS if there's something there that can make a CPU 'invisible'.
1) subscribe to freebsd-acpi and ask there if people have seen this before.
2) recompile kernel for acpi debugging, so you have information ready when
people ask for it
3) regardless of the 1), search for or file a new PR with your ACPI

Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
and never get to the software part.
